Thanks, this looks good to me.

I thought at first you could use "grep" here, since we know that the
name of the file would appear untranslated. But I think the way
GETTEXT_POISON works, it actually eats the whole string, including
placeholders (which IMHO is a failing of GETTEXT_POISON, since no real
translation would do that, but not worth caring too much about).
