I've seen the other discussion about "developer laziness", but I don't
buy into it that much.  This now means that every glib2 installation
requires that we have python installed, for one glib2 function called
"gtester-report". glib2 is a common pre-req, and maybe even for smaller,
embedded class machines, and I'm not sure a python interpreter is
wanted, needed, desirable or useful on such a machine.

Where do we draw the line? What pre-reqs should we require for a
package just because we can?
