Apparently, developers have a strong tendency to not fix these bugs the
correct way and instead, to make packages depend on e.g.
python-gtkmozembed | python-gnome2-extras

Therefore, I’m probably going to make gnome-python-extras follow the
gnome-python-desktop path:
      * the gksu2 and gdl modules will go in python-gksu2 and python-gdl
      * when gda comes back (Gustavo is working on packaging libgda4),
        it will be in python-gda
      * let’s take that opportunity to ditch egg.recent away

Are people OK with this approach?

 .''`.      Debian 5.0 "Lenny" has been released!
