         - Add a new installed library libpyglib-2.0, which contains the
           extension API for third-part modules instead of relying on macros

         - Remove leading IO_* prefix for the gio flags and register a quark

         - Use GSlice in the glib module and bump required version to 2.14.


GObject is a object system library used by GTK+ and GStreamer.

PyGObject provides a convenient wrapper for the GObject+ library for use
in Python programs, and takes care of many of the boring details such as
managing memory and type casting.  When combined with PyGTK, PyORBit and
gnome-python, it can be used to write full featured Gnome applications.

Like the GObject library itself PyGObject is licensed under the
GNU LGPL, so is suitable for use in both free software and proprietary
applications.  It is already in use in many applications ranging
from small single purpose scripts up to large full
featured applications.

PyGObject requires glib >= 2.14.0 and Python >= 2.3.5 to build.
GIO bindings require glib >= 2.16.0.
