Removed the GTK dependency from the project as it was not really needed anymore.

New version available at the download page, version 3.1.

Thanks for bringing this to my attention.
I will make the changes and release a new version.

pygtk is unmaintained upstream. It has not had a release since GNOME 3 was released in 2011. Thus it is likely that more and more Linux distributions, including Debian [1], will remove pygtk in the near future.

The way forward is to port childsplay to use GObject Introspection

For more information on GObject Introspection see [2] and [3].
