Not really a problem, it's just easier to find when you can have
translated multiline msgstr like
msgid "some long text"
msgstr ""
"some very long"

(I have to use relatively complex regexp to find those cases).

To remain consistent with the gettext tools, for multiline
translation, the generated po entry should be IMO sthg like
msgid "some long text"
msgstr "some very "
"long translation"

i.e. the start of the translation remains on the same line as 'msgstr'
