module dependency checks of syncdb are not translatable nor catchable

I'm trying to inform the user about import errors such as the module dependency checks of syncdb.. The messages are in English and not translatable.. I guess it'd be better if they also had support for gettext.. I tried catching the exception but all I get is django.core.exceptions.ImproperlyConfigured which I can't differ if it's a MySQLdb import error or some other dependency..

You'll need to justify this a lot more. Module dependency check error messages are targeted at hte developer, not the end-users. We translate messages that are seen by end-users, but not by people writing the code (it would add an enormous number of strings to the translation burden for everybody).

Why are end users (as opposed to developers) seeing syncdb output?

Closing wontfix as eleven months have passed without the OP answering the question Malcolm posted.
