The only real "end user" application in this bunch is gst-player, which 
does support i18n.  I have to check if it still works as should though ;) 
I know I added it at some point and it worked, but haven't checked 
recently really.

We would of course love for it to get translated.  Is being in gnome's cvs 
a requirement for that ? If it is, we'll discuss it and probably decide to 
move it over - if the people that currently hack on it can get a gnome cvs 
account of course.

I have noticed that glib has translations too - we're not sure it's a good 
idea at this point to translate core warnings or anything, but I guess 
this is one of the many issues we'll have to resolve in preparation of an 
inclusion in gnome 2.2.
