It's not the same for Ubuntu, since .desktop files are translated
based on PO/MO files at run-time.

Of course, this is just a partial solution to intltool language pack
usage, and why I didn't accept Takao's patch to intltool to allow
rebuilding just .desktop files: you've got to support everything else
in the same manner (with everything else being .xml, .schemas,
.server, and similar files; Ubuntu, I believe, already hacks in
support for .server files as well).

For those interested, see

Until a distribution decides to use this, you'll have to recompile
packages to include new translations in static files.
