We don't.  I put  it in  the C code  since that  was most  convinient to
share  code with  all  the lua  plugin types.  (I  was also  considering
defining the  functions as _()  and N_() instead of  vlc.gettext._() and

I'll   probably  change   the   way  we   handle   native  lua   modules
(share/lua/intf/modules/ at the moment) in the comming days to make some
of them accessible to other lua plugin types (like extensions).

Btw, if  anybody knows  how to  test gettext  support without  having to
install vlc, I'd love to be told.
