Not exactly into the source root, but to the source
of individual components prepared for the NLS.

There was discussion at some point going on AFAIR on the topic or
close to the topic, but I don't recall how it ended. But this idea is
not new, and I don't remember why this approach wasn't followed...

One could've created a /po dir as you are saying and have translations
under it with directories for every component. But I'm not sure how
the gettext and other tools work, so I it might be specifics of the
tools. I still have to install them in order to use. But it's Peter
Eisentraut is in charge of NLS, so I guess he can clarify these points
better than I.
