I just gave a try at poedit, the comments are supported but they are
not show by default.

You have to explicitely enable the display of comments and even then it
still sucks:
	- the window is too small and doesn't use horizontal space
	- the window is there even if there are no comments


Which other GUI for translating PO files do exist? We could at least
recommend a better one
