As the gettext documentation is rather sparse on this, I just gave it a
try within the sugar package. Results:
1. We don't require the TRANS: prefix, so any comment will be included.
We can require the TRANS: prefix by adding "--add-comments=TRANS" to
XGETTEXT_OPTIONS in po/Makevars.
So far, only a single developer comment (that could potentially
confuse translators) has slipped into sugar.pot. All comments
directed at translators are properly marked as TRANS:, so we could
make this change now without any negative impact.
2. Multi-line comments are correctly handled (i.e. included in full)
both with and without requiring the TRANS: prefix.
