pinging this bug again in hope something could be done; it looks like
1.9.14 has been imported into the git repo, which is python3
compatible, but the dependencies are still pointing to python instead
of python3; furthermore, the only python script that uses `dbus` is
example-clients/jack_control (AFAICT) which is an example, so i think
python-dbus should be downgraded to a Suggests and of course switched
over to python3-dbus.

Let me know if i can help in any way to have jackd2 uploaded to sid
with its dependencies switched over to python3: jackd2 is the only
r-dep of python-dbus, which could be removed, allowing the removal
python-gi too.
