Applies a command to all translations of a translation catalog.
The COMMAND can be any program that reads a translation from
standard input. It is invoked once for each translation. Its
output becomes msgexec's output. msgexec's return code is the
maximum return code across all invocations.
A special builtin command called '0' outputs the translation,
followed by a null byte. The output of "msgexec 0" is suitable
as input for "xargs -0".
