Sorry for the ridiculous delay... The patch has now been applied to my
"next" branch. Thank you for the contribution!

You create foo.desktop.in and prefix translatable fields with an
underscore. We have @INTLTOOL_DESKTOP_RULE@ src/Makefile.am, which I
think takes care of the rest of the translation stuff. foo.desktop.in
should be put somewhere in src/Makefile.am too, maybe in EXTRA_DIST. I
don't know if there are some other details to be taken care of.
