PyGTK only exists for the current Python (CPython) and will not run
under IronPython. However, from IronPython you can access the Gtk# API
and therefor create Gtk+ Python. 
The APIs of Gtk# and PyGTK are rather different and thus not compatible.
If there is a demand a basic compatibility layer can probably be written
for either of them.
