[pypy-dev] supporting new libraries

I would like to know how hard it is to support new libraries,
for example (probably far from the simplest, but would certainly
be cool to have - kind) pygtk (+pygobject, etc...)

Could someone help in finding what would be needed to get
that one(s) working ? Maybe with an approximate estimation
of the difficulty of each step, or what kind of required knowledge
to have.

In case it would be too early to attempt such project, a slight
explanation of what are the blocking points.

That kind of information could (should ?) be added to wiki or FAQ,
as a honey-pot for new contributors...

The help could simply be a pointer to the obvious documentation
that I managed to miss

user at host:~/repo/svn/pypy-trunk/pypy/translator/goal$ ./pypy-c -c 'import pygtk'
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "?", line 33, in run_toplevel
  File "?", line 349, in run_it
  File "<string>", line 1, in <module>
ImportError: No module named pygtk
