Is GTK from Maemo expected to compile (for the host itself) on  
desktop Linux or Mac OS X? What about Hildon?

How much work would be required for making Python development  
possible on any *nix style platform with an X server by compiling GTK  
and Hildon and their Python wrappers for the hosting architecture and  
installing them in a non-conventional directory prefix to prevent  
conflicts with the usual GTK installation?

(BTW, it would be nice if the source download page documented the  
right svn incantations for pulling the source corresponding to the  
OS2006 release.)
