I very strongly second this idea. It solves quite a few things in one
swell foop:

* Localization becomes less of a matter of hunting through the code
for hidden string literals.

* For people wishing to squeeze every possible byte out of their
library, this file could be replaced with a stub.

* Numeric identifiers--or whatever--would be easy to add, depending on
an individual user's needs.
