 I think we all agreed that lang.h isn't the best way to handle stdout/stderr messages. Nicolas' approach of putting them in gettext sounded good to me, but I don't have anything resembling a strong opinion on the subject.

 It looks like I've been putting some new stderr strings in lang.h out of habit. I will try to remember to stop doing that.

 Ok, I will do this eventually if nobody else does.
