[wp-hackers] Internationalizing plugin meta-data...

I'm trying to follow the instructions in 
http://codex.wordpress.org/I18n_for_WordPress_Developers for how to 
get the plugin meta-data into my plugin's POT file, for a plugin that 
is not in the repository.

This involves running a PHP file 

That file doesn't run, though... First, there's a required file 
"not-gettexted.php", which isn't mentioned in the instructions -- this 
is not a huge deal, as it could be downloaded from the same location.

However, that second file requires "pomo/po.php" and "pomo/mo.php". 
Neither of those is in evidence. Where can I get these? And are there 
any other files required by these includes that I would need? And does 
this script work once the required files are there? Has anyone tested it?


ps: I don't think this discussion belongs on the Polyglots mailing 
list. This is an issue for all plugin developers, as every plugin 
should be internationalized, whether the author wants to provide 
translations or not.
