Gwibber missing python-httplib2 dependency

Bug Description

A fresh install of Gwibber on Kubuntu fails to connect to supported services (Facebook, Twitter in my case). It complains about getting error code 1 from gwibber-service.

Attempting to start gwibber-service directly results in an ImportError due to a missing Python package:
$ gwibber-service
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/bin/gwibber-service", line 55, in <module>
    from gwibber.microblog.util.log import setup_logging
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/gwibber/microblog/util/", line 1, in <module>
    import re, cgi, httplib2
ImportError: No module named httplib2

Installing 'python-httplib2' manually fixes the problem. Thus it should probably be a dependency (or a dependency of a dependency, etc.) of gwibber.
