I spent most of last week working on upgrading the glib2 package - I didn't
post the package as I hadn't formulated the python question (and hadn't
excised pkg-config) yet. Seems that work was wasted...

gdbus-codegen is a python program.
Not to be confused with the test framework which needs python.

To quote its man page

  gdbus-codegen is used to generate code and/or documentation for one
  or more D-Bus interfaces. The tool reads Introspection XML files and
  generates output files. The tool currently supports generating C code
  and Docbook XML.

So basically, if we want gdbus-codegen, we need to add the python dependency...
