Ok, seems there is no bsddb module in python2.2. It seems to be time to
completely drop support for python < 2.3, since there are some things we
use in newer versions that simply doesn't exist in python <= 2.2, for
example plural forms in gettext.

It still isn't better, so i will explain further how you should do it.
The places where there are plural forms is easily found by searching in
the file for places with msgid_plural.
Those places have the following form:
* The original text is in two forms: msgid and msgid_plural, where msgid
contains the English text for a single item (examples: 1 week, You have
1 life left) and the msgid_plural contains the text for several items
(examples: 6 weeks, You have 17 lives left).
* The translated parts is also in two parts (for Dutch at least, there are
other languages with more plural forms): msgstr and msgstr where
msgstr is the single form and msgstr is the plural form.
By the way, you might want to use the nl.po from cvs, since that is
updated with the latest Mattricks.pot-data.
