Note that now that GCC has switched from -Wno-error=format-diag to -Werror=format-diag, the old form is becoming increasingly rare.

The current GCC still has several diagnostics that don't use %qs but stick to the old %<%s%> or even '%s'.

As a translator, I nevertheless want to use the short form %qs.

msgid "cannot open '%s'"
msgstr "%qs kann nicht geƶffnet werden"

The above should be valid. Currently the Gettext tools complain about mismatching conversion specifiers.
