I've uploaded my updated packages to http://atlee.ca/debian.  It builds
only a .deb for python2.3 at this point and the package is now called
python-gstreamer0.8.  I'd really appreciate help getting this package
cleaned up enough for submission to the debian repository, so any and
all questions and comments are welcome.
