All you need is python-gobject and you have bindings for all modern
gobject libraries. The C libraries are just used directly with
introspection for types. For example, you an use `from
gi.repository import Pango` for pango and it's the same for Gtk, Vte, etc.
(bindings like pygtk are dead ends now).
