[dev] Gettext strings in framework packages

What is the strategy for gettext strings in framework packages.   
AFAICT, these are our options:

1.) Keep current strategy (when building gettext strings for horde,  
incorporates all framework packages). This has the major drawback of  
not allowing true upgrades of framework packages, since a horde  
upgrade would be needed instead.
2.) Like #1, but keep all framework gettext strings in its own package  
(Framework_GettextStrings or something similar).
3.) Keep gettext strings for each framework package inside each package.
4.) No gettext strings in framework at all.  This is the PEAR-ish way  
of doing things.  Instead of returning/using gettext strings, you pass  
back a placeholder (i.e. a constant) and it is the apps job to do the  
gettext string generation.
