plural forms translation, ngettext

I was asked in
supporting ngettext-alike plural forms.
https://gerrit.libreoffice.org/#/c/61426/ is my proposal on that.
To current Translate::get(id) we add Translate::nget(id, cardinality)
when requesting the translation.
To current NC_(context, string) we add NNC_(context, singular, plural)
when declaring the strings for translation
We add --keyword=NNC_:1c,2,3 to our xgettext invocation resulting in a
change in the output .po for my calc SCSTR_TOTAL example from
msgid "%1 results found"
msgid "1 result found"
msgid_plural "%1 results found"
Locally at least this works to give the desired expected results of "1
result found" vs "2 results found" for the simple example.
caolanm->cloph: would this work smoothly with our current pootle stuff?
