With this package installed, now the import works, but not much more
according to the GExvi2 usage I got in a patch for my software
(lazygal) :
$ python
Python 2.7.3rc2 (default, Apr 22 2012, 22:30:17)
[GCC 4.6.3] on linux2
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
>>> from gi.repository import GExiv2
>>> im = GExiv2.Metadata('t.jpg')
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module>
TypeError: GObject.__init__() takes exactly 0 arguments (1 given)

> Steps to configure experimental and install:
> Add this line to your /etc/apt/sources.list:
>     deb http://ftp.debian.org/debian experimental main
> Update your sources and execute this:
>     sudo aptitude -t experimental install gir1.2-gexiv2-0.4

Why the version in the binary package name?
