adding full Python support to Vala

We've found a way to finish full Python support for Vala; plugin support will be added to valac soon and a PyObject plugin added to our distutils extension for handling Vala and Genie extension source files.

I'll be focusing on this over the next two weeks, with a target on Python 3.1. We're going with 3.1 as baseline for PyCapsule, which will help ensure type safety when passing GType objects through Python.

In the meantime work on libsoy can continue by the rest of the team.

Hello,

I was just asking about using Vala with Python on the mailing list [1]. Please, could you share a bit on how you did it?

Thank you in advance!
