gir1.2-grip isn't usable in python

Bug Description

Steps to reproduce:
- install gir1.2-grip from oneiric
- uninstall python-grip (as it has it's own bug)
- start python and type 'from gi.repository import Grip'
>>> from gi.repository import Grip
ERROR:root:Could not find any typelib for Grip
Traceback (most recent call last):
    File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module>
ImportError: cannot import name Grip

It seems that copying /usr/lib/girepository-1.0/Grip.typelib to eg .../Grip-1.0.typelib solves this issue - this may indicate that we require typelib versioning in python.

Indeed, the girepository requires versioning built into its file names.

Solving this will require either an expert in GIR or a learning curve, whichever comes first.
