### Expected Behaviour
When running pygettext with the -D CLI flag, all module, class, method and function docstrings should be extracted and outputted to the .pot file.

### Actual Behaviour
In the case of functions whose parameters have PEP 484 type annotations, their docstrings are not being extracted. I have attached two files, one .py file and its corresponding .pot file, as examples of this behaviour.

Correction for above: the type annotation syntax is actually from PEP 3107, not PEP 484.

I should also point out that this behaviour is occurring for annotated return types of functions and methods as well.

This is occurring on both Windows and Linux.

Another correction; I said that this is occurring for return type annotations; this is not true. This is only occurring for functions with annotated *arguments*.

The cause of this issue is in pygettext's TokenEater.__suiteseen method. This method eats tokens until it sees a colon operator, after which it assumes a function docstring may follow. In the case of a function with annotated arguments, obviously this is incorrect, as colons would appear before the final colon of the 'suite'.

I think this is resolved and can be closed.
