any translation efford is welcome!

So far, we only made the first step towards real i18n support
and that is, we use a special function _() for any strings.
This function is eventually to be replaced by real gettext
functionality. Once this second step happened, it will be fairly
easy to add any translation.

If you know about gettext functionality and how to use
it with python, your help would be very welcome to set this up.
If not, we'll have to see when we can afford the time to
do this ourselves (we are currently very busy working on further
projections, PostGIS-support and table management).
