You need to install the pygobject bindings [1] to be able to use gobject 
from python.


There's now an all-in-one installer for win32 users that conveniently 
bundles python 2.5 and gtk+ 2.12 with its python bindings (pycairo, 
pygobject and pygtk). You can get here: 

Further updates to the all-in-one installer will be anounced in pygtk.org.
