The graphic helped a good deal. I think I learned a while back that py-gtk2
is for python 2.4 while the more explicitly named py25-gtk2 goes with 2.5.
So I think there is a redundancy, and potential conflict, there.

Are there tools out there that help track these things down? The visuals are
nice but they're not machine-readable, unfortunately ;-)
