I have python-gnome2-desktop. Though I would argue that you shouldn't
need to install gnome in order to get gtk-sourceview....

That may easily be why Alexander doesn't have gtksourceview, considering
I haven't know gnome to be properly ported to win32 yet.

Anyway, it turns out that it works, but it is a little bit screwy.
Specifically from 'gannotate' you must have the plugin installed as
bzrlib.plugins.gtk (not bzrlib.plugins.bzr-gtk) to get the diff view to
show up.

Second, you have to wait a little while for the coloring to show up. I
was trying to test this on my Mac using X, and it seems that sourceview
will show the contents of the diff, and then after a few seconds it will
color it. Why it takes so long, I don't know. But at least it is working
again for me.

Sorry for the noise, though I think there are still some issues to be
worked out.
