 I concur (no idea about bdb, I don't build it, and I'm sticking with
Python-2.6 for gnome-2.30 after my previous experience with 2.7)
*except* that the latest gstreamer breaks gobject-introspection.
Details in the gst ticket, as I'm sure you've already seen (I'm
using a development version of soup which solves my problem).

 I'm still testing my current build to see if anything has broken, and
I don't anticipate editing BLFS in the next few days (with the possible
exception of other vulnerabilities), I don't have the time (might
grab an LFS ticket if Matt doesn't, but that's all!)
