Hi.  I would like to get improvement suggestions without being summarily
rejected. :-)  The fact that it handles \$ incorrectly was that no
applications that currently uses has \$ in their strings,
not some design decision that can't be fixed.

With that said, once the standard xgettext support perl reasonably
(preferably with [_1]), I'm happy to retire and replace it
with xmaketext or something else, to avoid confusion.
