You just need to place the mo file in the correct directory on the
machine where testing is done, and restart the application. You do not
need to code anything, AFAIK.

With a standard glibc calls, yes.

But if you preload a special wrapper on textdomain() and
bindtextdomain() and several others, it can download the file from the
translation server instead of reading it from the system directory.

Oh :-o

It is just an idea, nothing is written yet.

I see...

But you want this on every machine? :-?

It could cause unwanted internet activity. Consider that not everybody
has full internet access. It can be metered, or caped.

Thus this should be optional feature.

For translators and testers, that's different.

Oh, and the .mo has to match the application version: you can not just
download the latest. :-'
