pluma depends on python-gtksourceview2, which is long deprecated and
going to be removed from the archive. pluma should switch to using
the GObject Introspection bindings for gtksourceview,

This would mean switching to GObject Introspection for other bindings
as well, e.g. GLib and GTK+ 3.

For more information on GObject Introspection see [1] and [2].

Please try to do this before the Stretch release as we're going to
try to remove it this cycle.

If you have any question don't hesitate to ask.
