Hm, actually the patch doesn't change the behavior of xml2po... it still
expands the entities, but since the expansion is necessarily based on
what the internal subset declares -- i.e. "fdp-entities.ent" in the same
directory relative to the XML file -- now the expanded entities will
match what's in the POT.

Wait, I thought I was *removing* hackiness!  :-|  When we started using
the mydoc.xml.in stuff, we were still working toward trying to make the
internal subset do weird tricks while we kept the entity references
intact in the POT and PO files.  I think we've now realized this was the
hacky part, thanks to Mr. Veillard's gentle pushing, and just not doing
it is the simpler and more correct thing to do.
