it seems that site-packages/avahi.py is equivalent to avahi/__init__.py
with the added value, that you can then add more files in avahi/

I also don't know where i'm supposed to store SimpleGladeApp.py, it
seems that is should be package on its on and installed in
But until debiab/ubuntu/whatever package it, i don't really know where
to store it, i mean put it in $DATADIR/avahi/python/ and ajust the
import path in my pygtk app.

any suggestions welcom
