[vdr] VDR-core's texts in plugin's .pot files

Hi,

plugins can re-use VDR-core translations. With the old "i18n.c" method
plugin authors just did not provide a plugin specific translation for
these texts.
With the new translation method identifying these text got harder for
plugin translators. xgettext puts all texts into the .pot file - also
the texts for which the VDR-core translation should be used. A
translator now cannot see which texts he has to translate and which
not.

Can this be improved?

One way of doing this would be to introduce a new macro similar to
trNOOP( ). A plugin author would then tag the vdr-core texts with this
new macro and xgettext would ignore these texts.

What do you think?

Regards,
Matthias
