Again this won't be a problem if you a PO tool for edition or use Emacs' 
PO mode.

Again this is not what the PO tools do and it is them that format the PO 
file when Alexandre updates them. Besides for long messages the msgid 
string starts on the next line so the msgstr should do the same. You 
could complain about this to the gettext authors though (I just doubt 
they would change it).
