Implementing the expression syntax from the po header might be the
most tricky part - especially as that syntax is not properly specified
(to my knowledge), so one would need to reverse-engineer it from the
gettext implementation. I'd suggest that anybody attempting such a
thing should also provide gettext maintainers with a detailed
documentation of that feature.
