Hi Bruno,

You seem to have misunderstood.  It sounds like you're objecting to
something, but I didn't propose to put it in *gettext.h*.  I don't see
how you could be objecting to such an addition to hello's system.h.
If someone is doing something fancy, they can be expected to find their
own solution.

GNU hello is about demonstrating what works for most packages.
The above works for all 90+ programs in the coreutils package,
as well as for many other GNU tools.
