Comment(by nbachiyski):

 I played a lot with different variants. Here are some:
  * We can't put arrays in 2010, since most people will copy/paste it.
  * I like the idea of tying these functions into POT generation. This will
 need custom work, because we don't have a way to tell {{{xgettext}}} that
 the first argument is a standalone string and the second/third are plurals
 of a different one. In general it's good to have a custom POT generator,
 because we are already bending the xgettext capabilities. I will see what
 I can do.
  * We could try to think of a better name for {{{_n_noop()}}}. Nothing
 comes to mind, though.
