[New-bugs-announce] [issue8502] proposal: encourage xgettext rather than pygettext.py in gettext docs

New submission from jhg <jhg at upb.de>:
Wanting to figure out how to support multiple languages in my applications I read the gettext documentation and got to the part saying one should use pygettext.py to create .po files.
After copying that program from the python SVN repository I later found out that it cannot cope with plurals, i.e. ngettext(). xgettext can do that just fine. Since pygettext.py was not modified in 5 years I propose changing the documentation of gettext to encourage xgettext rather than pygettext.py.
My proposed changes are attached (edited as text file; I do not know how to convert it to a webpage and hence did not test that).
I used the 2.7b1 documentation, but the patch appears to apply just as well to the 3.1.2 documentation.
