POT file generator

POT file for plugins can be downloaded using generator on plugin's admin page. This is a bit inconvenient, because I have to upload new plugin version first, then download .pot file, update Polish translation files and after this continue with plugin version release. I would like to have ability to generate .pot file from WP itself. I know about wordpress-i18n tools, but they are unix-only (they use system() to call external gettext utilities).

Therefore I ask to integrate .pot file generation functionality into WP core, or (better) create plugin which will do this. Of course it should be platform-independent.

Language Packs will make this irrelevant for core, as plugins will no longer need to generate POT files. #18200
