Yes, the PO file format is totally independent of Zope and Python.

The Zope 2 people backported the Zope 3 code, so yes. :-)

That issue has not been addressed at all, since we are not supporting TTW

This is Python code; Zope 3 provides a customized pygettext implementation to
extract Python message strings.

Zope 3 does not have a translation service. It is also not of the translation
utility's concern to know about the negotiated language. There are other
interfaces for this; I believe ILanguageNegotiator.

I do not think there is an API for that, but you could certainly develop one.

Just implement the right interface and register it. This is not too hard and I
think there are code examples out there.

In Zope 3 you can simply call utilities/i18nextract.py; it will extract all
message strings from Python, ZPT and ZCML files.
