I think this would require support in gettext; I don't know enough
about gettext facilities to tell if this is possible.

Anyway, if we want a comment-like solution, we could try doing
something to force gettext insert a comment into the gdb.pot file.
Again, I don't know if this is easy, but I'd assume it should be
possible.  I'll look when I have time.
