It does, I've just checked, my oversight. But it also requires that all 
languages of the requested catalog are in the same directory, as 
bindtextdomain takes only catalog name and directory name. KDE is just 
locating xx/LC_MESSAGES/ in resource dirs.

Hm, for a known catalog directory and catalog language, perhaps I could 
call bindtextdomain and setenv("LANGUAGE", xx) prior to gettext call.
