Commit message

- Do not mix static with gi bindings (LP: #829186).

Description of the change

pygobject >= 2.90 is now absolutely zero tolerant against importing both the
static and the GI version of a particular library. This was mostly the case
with 2.28 as well, but did work in some cases (like "import gobject; from
gi.repository import Gtk", in particular for "glib" and "gobject"). These now
cause errors as well.

With this fix we can use the library from both programs with static bindings
(gobject, gtk), as well as from programs which use the gobject-introspection

See bug 829186 for more details.

Hi Martin!

The branch looks great, I'm approving. In order to have this branch being landed by tarmac (our bot lander), we'll need that the test run (triggered by ./run-tests) reports no lint errors. ATM, in natty, I'm getting this:

    28: [E0611] No name 'GObject' in module 'gi.repository'

You need to wrap the from gi.repository import GObject like this:

    # pylint: disable=E0611
    from gi.repository import GObject
    # pylint: enable=E0611

fix pylint tags

Thanks for the fixes!

For some reason I can't debug right now, lint will not be happy unless I change the disables to something like this:

     25 # pylint: disable=E0611
     26 if 'gobject' in sys.modules:
     27 import gobject as GObject
     28 else:
     29 from gi.repository import GObject
     30 # pylint: enable=E0611

would you please perform this last change? Thanks!
