A thread on the i18n list [1] suggests using "msgfmt -c message.pot" before uploading the strings. I'm not sure if we can reasonably run such a test on the gate on our test jobs, so that broken strings can't merge?

Bindep [2] would let us add a build time-only test dependency on the gettext package that contains the command. But then we'd still need to fork a shell somewhere to run it, which I'm not sure is possible or recommended.
