Yes, this makes it available in pootle, but I don't know whether the
plural rules are needed in the po file for proper use of the different
forms, or whether they are just informational for the po-editing tool
and gettext will ignore it and use whatever it knows about the
language.

In other words: I have no idea/didn't check whether the equation is
required or optional for proper use in LO.

(If they are required, then further tweaks to pocheck utility are
necessary, right now it disregards most of the PO-Header and instead
writes its own, possibly stripped-down version when there are errors
in the po-file)
