Comment(by tomeu):

 _i18n_timestamps_cache = {}

 The number of cached entries is limited but can be pretty large, what
 about using a LRU cache? We have an implementation in the same module
 (util.py) and icon.py uses it.

 query_args = ''.join((os.environ['LANG'], name_singular,

 I think we should use locale.get_locale() instead of os.environ['LANG'].

     time_period += _i18n_timestamps_cache[query_args]

 I'd prefer if we checked like this "if query_args in
 _i18n_timestamps_cache:" instead of catching an exception.
