msg for swat is installed as it is to a different directory from
pam_winbind's. po for pam_winbind are msgfmted. merging two types of
files results in a little more complex install script..

What's the plan? Does the directory look like this after merge:
source3/po(or locale)/<module name>/*.po?
ie, source3/po(locale)/swat/, source3/po(locale)/pam_winbind/,

And merge script/installmsg.sh, script/installmo.sh? we must
differentiate the two types of files in the install script, for each
kind of files added to source3/po(or locale), we have to add the module
name to the one kind in the script.
