Not going to be easier to maintain, since it would be in
database.[my|pg]sql instead of the module files. In fact, it would need
to be in both SQL files.

I don't see your point. Isn't the PO files already easy to translate.

This might be interesting, but is probably easier to do without moving
help text around.
