Hi all.

As you might now, I'm working for some time now on my personal goal to 
'get i18n right' (tm) in Plone ;)

The next big problem I want to tackle is internationalization of text in 
Python code. After looking at the given possibilties I have come to the 
conclusion that Zope3 MessageID's are the best way of doing this. As 
using these require some infrastructure changes and break backwards 
compatibility I have written PLIP 108 
(http://plone.org/products/plone/roadmap/108/) to explain the changes in 

As I really want these changes to be included in the next Plone release, 
I want to hear all your concerns or questions now, so we have a solid 
base for the decision process.

Let the discussion begin :)
