Damn - you were quicker than me :-)

Yes, you are right.  But even better if a newer python-gnome2-desktop 
could be backported, as it provides python-rsvg as an isolated binary 
package, allowing a much smaller installation.

Also sugar-0.86 depends on python-gconf which is unavailable in Lenny.  
I have a moment ago started backporting the chain of packages needed for 
that (just finished gobject-introspection while writing now, still 
pending is pygobject and then gnome-python itself).  But perhaps 
python-gconf is actually available in Lenny, hidden in some other 
package (similar to python-rsvg formerly hidden in 
python-gnome2-desktop) so I can simply add a fallback in sugar-0.86.  
Need to investigate that...
