This is a very good idea. I think pygettext should always sort the
output, without even asking the user; ideally in the same way as
xgettext would sort them. It appears that your patch sorts them by
file-then-line, so does xgettext.

Therefore, I propose that you remove the command line option, and
submit your change to sf.net/projects/python.
