Ok, I'm working with the developers, and we're trying to find
another, supported interface that will allow the application to
support multiple-concurrent (within a single process) language

I had thought dgettext(3) might do that, but it's really geared
at changing the name of the file used for the translations
lookups, without changing the selected language, and not
changing the language in use.

Is there a currently available public interface that might the
needed functionality?

FYI: the spectrum developers were not particularly happy to be
using, but they'd not been able to find any
other interface.
