I second that. Furthermore, I do believe that most people who would alter
the theme would understand enough English to get by regardless of the
gettext functions. Should some l10n team (particularly non western, I guess)
think that they'd have to hardcode the translation, I'm certain they would
be able to wipe out the gettext strings just as easy as simply translating
the bits we have already translated. Actually, it would probably be a lot
easier to pinpoint the strings in need of translation if they are marked by
I say, leave it to the translation team to decide whether their users would
be able to insert new functions in a gettexted theme or not.
