Well, the problem here is that applications that tried to be good gnome
citizens and switched early to gtk3 and to gobject-introspection are now
stuck in the middle of the road, blocked by problems in pygobject and in
g-i. Hopefully part of the problems will be solved in the upcoming
pygobject hackfest, but I really hope that addressing these problems is
considered a high priority task in the gnome3 todo list.
