[development] Translating database fields

Hmm, tt() doesn't seem very developer friendly.

If you're developing a module that is translatable, you can't  
realistically require i18n, and checking for the module / function in  
100 places would be unpleasant (assuming that it is normally used the  
same way as t() in the code).

Other than making a wrapper function in the module that passes to tt()  
if it exists, do you have any suggestions to make this cleaner?
