*bump* - any news?

@Valerio - just wondering: how much effort would it take to include
PyGTK 2.24 (or 2.22) into the app bundle? There are a couple of
externally developed extensions which use custom dialogs based on PyGTK,
the most popular among them is 'Sozi' [1], other known ones are 'TeX
Text' [2], and 'inksmoto' [3]. Making those custom extensions work with
the current Inkscape 0.48.2 Mac OS X package (using Python, PyGTK, lxml,
etc. installed in a local MacPorts tree) is a hack at best [4], and not
easy to handle for many users. Admittedly, I haven't tried yet whether
the same hack could be used with your RC packages.

If rewriting the paths of the PyGTK modules (*.so files) to load the
libs already included in the app bundle can be done based on the same
packaging script changes you wrote for UniConvertor, and if it doesn't
add too much to the overall download size - I could imagine that this
would be greatly appreciated by many users.
