[Mediawiki-l] {{msg:}} and database messages

Is it at all possible to turn on the {{msg:}} transclusion without
having the database messages on?

We had {{msg:}} transclusion enabled on Wikitravel up until moving to
MediaWiki 1.2.x, after which I had to turn on the DB messages, too, to
have this work.

We _don't_ have memcache up, and I don't really have the wherewithal
to get it working. Retrieving all the interface messages from the DB
for every single page hit is inestimably wasteful, and has measurable
time costs.

Any help appreciated.
