To satisfy your curiosity ;-) I'm working on clutter, python-clutter and
as deps for "Entertainer", a media center for Xfce and GNOME.

I have had an half working package so far (there are still some
errors with the content-manager).

Building the other deps I found errors about the compatibility
of the releases among clutter libs, so in some way, I need to fix that,
(if the issue is only related to pkg-config, as sometimes happens)
or to build an older version of some libs including "python-clutter".

In that second case I would expect the same behavior about
"pygobject" or not (I haven't verified so far and I can't at moment).

I will try to verify.
