I will, as soon as the glade question is solved.

Well, request was for a web site, forwarding to opengrok. I think in a  
CLI, you may want a different output.
Adding some specs, so ?

Hem... The original goal wasd to search in *.[hs]rc to find en-US ref  
strings and where they are used in the code. I don't manage to bind that  
with your question. Basically, all codes in.ui are stored in a .po file,  
under the same folder structure in the translations repo. Have I missed  
something ? If you could give a use case, it may become clearer to me.
