hi all, 

I would like to know how libraries succeed at making internationalization work. 

As I see it, when a library has a string to internationalise, the _( macro 
will catually be a call to gettext which is going to fetch the message from 
the domain currently set. If I have loaded this library from a program which 
has set another domain, the string is fetched from the program's domain and 
not from the library doamin. 

The only solution I see here is to have each library function call 
bindtextdomain and textdoamin at the begening of each function call but
this is obviously not the case in production code.

So, my question is: how does it work ?
