GObject is an abstraction layer that allows programming with an object
paradigm that is compatible with many languages. It is a part of Glib,
the core library used to build GTK+ and GNOME.
This package contains the Python Cairo bindings for GObject. It is mostly
used by other bindings to map their GObjects to Python objects.
