The way KDE does it is somewhat different. For example there is that 
possibility that user can select more languages by priority, so that 
message doesn't immediately fall back to English if translation is not 
found in the topmost language. Priority of environment variables also 

I'll inquire on Translation-i18n about the possibility of telling Gettext 
exactly which catalog (as in .mo file) to use for next *gettext call, and 
than see if I can make something out of it.
