You probably also saw my answer in 2001:
This is why we improved the gettext mechanisms since then.

The idea behind this was, to keep statist as simple
and small as possible. Now that we have two languages
in the source code, I think we should just keep them
there and use gettext for the additional ones.
The ideal solution would be that someone makes a special version
of gettext so that we can extract the German translation directly
from the source. ;)
I'll look at the patch,
it is probably fine to just have two possibilities
in the source code and simplify it.

Let us wait until somebody jumps up for DOS,
if possible I do not want to break the possibilities
that statist has under DOS, but I have not used them myself
since a very long while.
