Gettext and QT4?

Dear Lazyweb,

do you know how to translate QT4 applications with gettext? Looks like QT4 now uses it’s own mechanism (lupdate -> .ts -> linguist -> .ts -> lrelease -> .qm) for translating strings, which makes things a bit complicated if the rest of your application (the non GUI part) still uses gettext.

The background is — as some of you may have noticed — that rng’s GUI isn’t properly translated anymore since the switch from QT3 to QT4. I don’t know if I just should adopt QT4′s translation mechanism, but for now it would be very nice if I just could use my .po files for the QT4 stuff.
