Would it be better to use intltool's built-in xml scraping (using
_propertyname) to translate? That plus an xsl extension object that
actually calls into GettextCatalog.GetString would likely work well.

That would make it so we wouldn't have the versioning issue, as the
strings would come out of the po file. This would be similar to how
gettext translates glade files, and our addin.xml files.
