Oh you of little faith. Someone approached karltk at LWE with a
completed python+gtk2 installer. See http://pen2.sclab.clarkson.edu/.

I quote Karl:
"What's more, they're going to be working actively on this
irrespectively of whether we officially start using it or not. I
personally would think it completely stupid not to seriously consider
this most generous offer; they are an entire sw development team, they
seem organised, they have api docs, and they're long-time gentoo users.
Having them do most of the dirty-work, leaves us to do integration and
tweaks, to polish this thing off."

An old snapshot of source is at:

Thanks,
Donnie
