Added -gts, not a default, to treat _("...") as a string when breaking lines.

Because the gettext standard uses _("") delimiters around strings for localization, it would be good to either treat that as a type of string constant or to keep the underscore with the following opening paren as a function call.

Considering that gettext is GNU-standard, consider making this the default treatment in the -gnu option set.
