 Hmm indeed, if someone only updates gnome-python from stable, other
 packages might be broken.  I thought we would keep the Depends only
 until apps are fixed.   :-(
   I suppose Ubuntu doesn't promise a partial upgrade path for any
 package set that respect the dependencies.

 The split looks really stupid now, should we introduce some
 python-gnome2-2 or similar that python-gnome2 depends on, and use
 python-gnome2 only as a transition package?
