I maintain wallpapoz and as far as I am correct wallpapoz is also affected:
wallpapoz uses

gnome.PARAM_APP_DATADIR
gnome.program_init
gnome.help_display

Instead, if OLPC members wants to use only non-binding part, would you consider
to create gnome-python2-base (for example) and to make gnome-python2 depend on
gnome-python2-base?
