 > I mean, you can't beat _e() or __().
 ehm... i dont wanna beat _e() or __() but if a plugininfo-function exists,
 it should _also_ tell/know the name of a plugins textdomain. ('''as i said
 before''') Seems you just got me wrong. When saying 'simplify l10n', i
 didn't mean the function names. maybe a code example makes it more easy to
 understand for everybody...

 this is the syntax proposed:
 {{{_e('translate this!', 'wordpress-has-no-idea-what-exact-textdomain-a
 (even though that it also works without the textdomain - thats the way
 most people write it down...) it seems convenient to me to let a general
 get_plugininfo()-function acess this string, too. so one won't have to
 repeat '''the name of the textdomain''' over and over again...
 currently one will have to add the $path to the call of the textdomain
 function in a plugin which could be done in the function itself (if it
 only knew the textdomain/filename for the plugins .mo. it could search
 where it is stored eg: plugins/ or /plugins/myplugin/ or

 most important argument to me would be that this would allow l10n of all
 plugins uploaded. (eg: descriptions) without actually having the plugin
 activated or using it
