Hmm, yes it should - I didn't notice we kept the .spec in CVS - I thought it
was only in Fedora CVS.

They're currently setup to use the same catalog since it makes the build
system integration a hell of alot easier - the generic Makefiles installed
by gettext all assume a single .pot file. The virsh strings are about 50%
of the total translatable text, and the compiled .gmo file is 24 kb so we'd
only be saving about 12 KB of memory splitting them out. This is pretty
much just line-noise compared to 400 KB which libvirt.so comes in at.
