At the cost of translating a lot more and quite similar strings.  This
breaks too many other translations.  Although not being correct, it is
better to not apply your patch.  Sorry.

Where possible I try to use a table format to avoid plural issues.  BTW,
for that reason this hunk would be wrong:

> -  log_info (_("permanently loaded certificates: %u\n"),
> +  log_info (ngettext(" permanently loaded certificate: %u\n",
> +                     "permanently loaded certificates: %u\n",
> +                     total_loaded_certificates),



Die Gedanken sind frei.  Ausnahmen regelt ein Bundesgesetz.
