Yes, that's what our intention is.  Unfortunately, translators often
forget to add this addtional info.  A reminder for the translators would
be good; for `hello' I just added the following comment:

      /* --help output 5 (end)
         TRANSLATORS, please don't forget to add the contact address for
         your translation!
         no-wrap */
      fputs (_("\
Report bugs to <address@hidden>.\n"), stdout);

      exit (0);

xgettext will extract this comment and add it to the message file to
remind the translator.  I'd like to see added such a cooment to all
utils packages/tools.  Maybe, this helps :)

I hope, it's clear what I want to say.
