I'm fine with that, too.

But I would like to emphasise that, so far, we did not manage to have a
gettext-tiny that *really* impersonates GNU gettext.

I think that, ideally, we would like to have:
  - libintl headers that expose the same API as those from GNU gettext,
  - a libintl (probably a static one) that exposes just stub functions.

Additionally, for pre-built blobs, we might want to have a shared
libintl as well, that exposes the same stub functions (but I would not
miss such a lib.)

As I see it, gettext-tiny does not readily and easily provides for this.

Regards,
Yann E. MORIN.
