and access the translated docstring with a new 'np.info'.  As near as I can
figure, Python 'help' command can't be replaced by something else, so
'help' would always display the English docstring.

help() just returns the __doc__ attribute, but a large number of numpy's
__doc__ attributes are set up by code at import time, so in principle even
these could be run through gettext pretty easily.
