Currently the I18n::Backend::Gettext module treats "context" (in pgettext and npgettext) and "scope" in almost the same way. Basically, it expects the context to be in the "Context|Real translation text" format. They are totally different though in Gettext : and the context is implemented through the msgctxt key in the PO file.

I know that this is not currently supported in the i18n API so I'm sure whether this could actually be supported but then it could be better to raise a warning at least that the two functions (pgettext and npgettext) are being used.

Please see the pull request for failing test proof + fix. My apologies for the stupid fixture names in the po (couldn't think of anything better)
