I agree, it's a major issue.  One idea I'd like to float for Python
(more publicly) is for only allowing the following combinations:
Python 2 + GTK 2 + pygtk
Python 3 + GTK 3 + pygobject-introspection

At GUADEC I observed various people asking for different entries in
the 3x3 matrix, but really supporting all 9 combinations is just
insane.  Pushing Python-introspection back a cycle to when more OS
vendors are shipping Python 3 would give us more time to bring
introspection and pygobject-introspection forward which we do (at this
point) need.

(Part of this is an overdue introspection status report; I've been
working hard on a branch trying to move things forward, will post
