What's the plan for gnome-python? I think pygtk should definitely be
in the book. For gnome-python and gnome-python-desktop, I think it
will be a good idea if we attempt to enumerate them by module so that
people can attempt to avoid some extreme dependency hell.

Required: pygtk and libgnome
Required (for gnome.ui module): pyorbit and libgnomeui
Required (for gnome.canvas module): libgnomecanvas
Required (for gnomevfs module): gnome-vfs

Then, for GNOME Applets, for instance (not necessarily true):
<xref linkend="gnome-python"/> (gnomevfs module), <xref
linkend="gnome-python-desktop/> (gnomeprint module)

What do you think? The's for gnome-python and
gnome-python-desktop are fairly clear on what's needed for what
module. There might be a couple tricky ones, but I think we can get it
fairly correct.
