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

New version available at the download page, version 3.1.

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
bindings.

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