Currently avahi.py just contains some definitions (no functions or
whatsoever) which are needed to make sensible use of the DBUS API. I
doubt it is advisable to add much more than this. Therefore I consider
the appelation "avahi bindings" a little over-the-top.

I don't know much about site packages, but shouldn't it be
sufficient to put avahi.py into
/usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/avahi.py and that's it?
