[ckan-dev] Overwrite i18n strings from extensions

Well, in the case of IATI there are dozens of customized stings, .i.e.
all of those who include "group" (per "publisher"), or "package" (per
"activity file"). I don't see how can we can handle it parameterizing
and the rewrite filter seems maybe is not flexible
I also think that is not hard to think of a use case where i18n could
be necessary, like an extension for a national catalog which uses
custom strings and wants to support different languages.
