It turns out I spoke too soon. Python 2.3 gettext (and the gettext
distributed with Zope 3) *does* support GNU plural forms, with ngettext()
and ungettext() methods. Zope 3 doesn't expose this facility via zope.i18n
Anyway, if you need a solution right away, the Python 2.3 gettext module
will apparently work with 2.2.
