Move libgnome[ui] Python bindings to gnome-python2-gnome?



The OLPC guys are asking me to split the Python bindings for libgnome
and libgnomeui into a new subpackage of gnome-python2 called
gnome-python2-gnome (see [1]).  The rationale being that libgnome drags
in extra dependencies that some of the other gnome-python2 subpackages
don't need.  For example, gnome-python2-gnomevfs doesn't need libgnome
but still requires its parent package, gnome-python2.

This sounds like a reasonable idea to me but it will break other
packages that require gnome-python2 expecting to get the libgnome[ui]
bindings.  Those packages would have to require gnome-python2-gnome
instead.

Possibly affected packages include:

  audit-viewer
  autobuild-applet
  awn-extras-applets
  blogtk
  decibel-audio-player
  deskbar-applet
  fwbackups
  gjots2
  gnome-password-generator
  gnome-python2-desktop
  gnome-python2-extras
  gourmet
  gramps
  hamster-applet
  hwbrowser
  listen
  meld
  policycoreutils-gui
  qa-assistant
  rhythmbox
  setroubleshoot
  system-config-bind
  system-config-cluster
  system-config-httpd
  system-config-lvm
  system-config-netboot
  system-config-network
  system-config-printer
  wallpapoz

Any objections or alternate suggestions?

Thank,
Matthew Barnes
