That is not what I would call support. That is just doing directly what KDE 
does internally.

Doing so would mean to drop all variants of i18n and I18N_NOOP. So that is 
clearly not source-compatible.

And from the transltors' point of view, it is not good either, as it keeps the 
\n as special separator.

Have a nice day!
