As I understand it it won't obsolete PyGtk, but it will make it much easier to maintain. For our purposes, though, that's irrelevant. I'll reinstate --enable-introspection=no in modulesets-stable and modulesets. If someone wants bleeding edge (like me when I'm writing gtk-quartz code), that's what modulesets-unstable is for.
