shoebot gtk3 + pypy .. noticeably faster :)

Stuart Axon

TL;DR - experimental shoebot branch works in pypy, with gtk3.

The above branch amalgamates the previous work on cairocffi and gtk3 using gi.repository.  

To get compatibility with pypy, we use pgi to access gtk3 and cairocffi to access cairo.

Apart from running faster, this branch has the potential to get rid of most of the evil-setup-scripts(TM).

To get it working in Ubuntu you need pypy and pypy-dev.    Start shoebot manually with pypy, like:
$ pypy sbot -w examples/animation/
