We've thought about adding support for guessing about how difficult a
string is to translate, based on things such as how long it is, whether
it has plural forms, whether it has variable substitutions etc.

The main disadvantage to this is that related messages are often (though
not always) near each other in the .pot file, and seeing related
messages together often helps in having a consisitent translation.
