Meson uses .gmo to distinguish that they are specifics GNU mo files, as opposed
to one of the other flaovrs like the solaris mo files, which use a completely
different syntax. The real difference is that autotools generates a folder
hierarchy to place the .mo (or .gmo) files in, but meson doesn't guarantee
folder structures in the build directory, so mimicking the autotools behavior
isn't guaranteed to work or continue working.

We certainly could change autotools to follow the same pattern if that's what
you wanted to do. I just don't have the expertise with autotools to do it
quickly, and I wanted to get something wired for meson.
