I don't think enough people know about Tools/i18n/pygettext.  It does
all the extractions for you, producing a GNU gettext compatible .pot
file.  You can even teach it to recognize extraction keywords other than
the default _().  printf() should be easy to recognize, although we
might have to make a slight modification since IIRC, pygettext will only
extract strings from keyword functions with exactly one argument.  That
should be easy to fix.
