Hi Benedykt.

Ok, the templates serve more than localisation purposes, thats why we
are using them.
They allow people to customise a lot more.

Nope it sure isnt. It is too late to think about it for koha 2.0. But
there is no reason we cant have a discussion with all the developers
post release and decide to work on a gettext solution to help with

We wont get rid of the templates, since the templates allow you to
change much much more than language strings. But we might want to
suplement their use with using gettext modules.

Yep you are right. For those templates whose only difference is
language, using gettext will save some time.
