[wp-hackers] Improving Plugin (and Theme) metadata

Why should WP be providing tools for what is a much more general 
problem, internationalizing applications with gettext? We don't 
provide web browsers, text editors, PHP debuggers, or any of the other 
tools that developers might use.

Just my 2 cents -- these translation tools have been around for a 
while, are used on other projects besides WP, and I don't think WP 
wants to get into the business of creating new tools for plugin devs.
