It's not as simple: you can't use pygtk and pygi at the same time in the
same program.

Is that still true if PyGtk+friends is built against Gtk-3.0 etc? That
is not my understanding.

This has nothing to do with the Gtk version. It's merely that you can't
have several C wrappers for the same gtype, so the first imported one
wins. And they don't have exactly the same API. So if you use gtk.Window
and Gtk.Frame, both will use the same GtkWidget wrapper, and it could be
Gtk.Widget or gtk.Widget...

I'm not suggesting mixing the bindings. No way.

If a Python plugin only does "import pygtk,gedit (which pulls in the old
defs generated bindings [1])" then how does it clash with the gtypes
registered from gi (as AFAIK those are connected dynamically in the
'from gi.repository import' hook)?

It's simple: plugins are in-process, and the limitation stands at the interpretor level, so basically it's that a single process has to choose between both wrappers.

If you do "import gtk" from plugin 1, the wrappers will be registered and used when plugin 2 is loaded...
