This would mean more file I/O every time mod_mbox runs, and maybe
using an external library such as gettext (quite heavy stuff for
mod_mbox needs). Maybe some home-made system, but I fear that it won't
be fast enough.

I did not proposed XML+XSLT as a solution to i18n problems. It is just
an interesting system that can provide both templating-like mechanism
and i18n facilities (still, not as clean as I would like).
