To my knowledge, Bruno just put a section in the gettext manual
explaining gettext usage with various (progamming) languages. The
Python entry there does mention pygettext.py.

I don't think it has this link, yet. But then, URL-style links are
infrequent in texinfo documentation. Instead, (python)gettext might be
a better link.

At a minimum, msgmerge should preserve them.
