Description of problem:
The version 2.10 of gnome-python-extras does not include a wrapper for the gnome_applet_request_focus method, thus, due to the new focus policies in gnome 2.10, it is not possible to write a python applet including a text entry of a component needing keyboard focus. Old applications need to be ported to this new API, or won't be able to get focus.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Run a python applet with a text entry
2.Click on the text entry
Actual Results: No cursor in the text entry, so it is not possible to input text.
Expected Results: Cursor to appear in the text entry field, and being able to input text.
A wrapper is available in the unstable release (2.11) of this component.

Patch to add Applet.request_focus
Here's a patch that adds the proper method to 2.10.0.
Is there any possibility of having this patch added? I require it in order for
the new release of deskbar-applet to work properly.
Should be in next update
