For deploying applications that use GTK# + gettext this is not a
problem. You only need to ship Mono.Posix.dll + libMonoPosixHelper.dll
with your application (like inside you application directory).

But for development, yes gettext is not the simplest way as you need to
generate and update the pot files which AFAIK needs the gettext/intl
tools from cygwin.
Our company develops under Linux so I have no experience on developing
gettext enabled applications on windows. There are for sure PO editors
available for windows, but thats only one part of the needed tools.

Regarding your feature request, of a fully managed gettext
implementation for Mono, that would only work partly if you use glade,
as glade will always use the unmanaged version.
