Comment (by SteveAgl):

 Even fo I agree on the ML discussion about this method now I think its a
 bit a mess, till now all localization was made (except for a couple of
 files like license.html and the distro themes) using language files, so
 localizing team didn't have to touch directly code of plugins etc.

 This way we will have to touch code, and distribute locale versione of
 plugin distrubuted with WP, for other plugins if i do the italian version
 i ghave to send back tto author not only the language files but the plugin
 code too and he have to merge the header with my new additions and
 redistribute the files.. that sound a bit a mess :)

 Actually i don't have any idea about an alternative method. A contorted
 one should be having a series of constant declaration at the top of the
 plugin code that will be gettexted so they will be included into the .pot
 file anc can be easily localized. Other Idea ?
