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...
