On the whole adding a python-configobj package to the ppa seems cleaner.

I had a look at backporting configobj from hardy to dapper and was,
for the moment, defeated by its dependencies on later versions of many
packages such as debhelper and python-support.  It seems like one
would almost need to repackage it for dapper.  I think I'll leave it
for now but perhaps tomorrow I'll try again, or otherwise resurrect
bzr's own copy of configobj.
