[vlc-devel] purpose of N_()

I'm wondering what is the meaning of the N_() macro defined in
include/vlc_common.h. After some searching I came across a page which
said that in glib it is used to mark strings that should be translated
but can't be used directly once translated:
Is this how it is meant to be used in the VLC code?
Is modules/gui/wxwidgets/dialogs/bookmarks.cpp using N_() according to
this principle?
