Because unless I'm missing something gtk2 and gtk3 shared libs have common
symbols on the default interface so you cannot load and use them in one
Apparently pydoc doesn't crash without bzr-gtk because gi.repository.Gtk
is a "virtual" module, resolved in the runtime, so pydoc doesn't know
about it.
