libgettextpo API doesn't have enough flexibility to edit .po/.pot files: once a format is set or unset (e.g. "#, kde-format" or "#, no-kde-format"), there's no way to clear it without recreating a po_message_t.

A workaround could be to recreate a message with po_message_create(). However it implies that one needs to recreate the whole PO file, since there's no way to remove messages (no function po_message_remove/po_message_erase that would do the opposite of po_message_insert.)
