It's actually a runtime dependency in the Gentoo ebuild, and it is a
hard dep. Not sure why actually -- I assume our Gnome team has some
reason for forcing the python RDEP. PyGTK, maybe? Maybe ask either
gnome at or drac at g.o (though he's also on this list) to find out

You sure you aren't leaving something out of your glade?
