Yep, we discussed that a while ago.

IIRC there was some debate about how the message keys should look.
Today we have short strings (e.g. "K1234") and there was a proposal to
make that <module>.<id> (e.g. "beans.42").  I recall some objections to
that proposal but cannot recreate them right now.

We didn't go on to discuss the Eclipse technique of using a Message type
with fields for the messages.

Regards,
Tim
