Yes, through gi.repository (GObject - introspection).  ambctl needs to be updated slightly to use that instead of the old version.

Hi all,

I am building Automotive Message Broker as part of Baserock, and while I can
build it and run ambd successfully, I am having a few difficulties with
running ambctl.

Specifically, the problem is finding the project that provides 'gobject' for
ambctl's `import gobject`. After a bit of searching, it is apparently
provided by pygtk (, but that has the disadvantage of
having not been updated for 2 years, which itself depends on an outdated
version of pygobject and glib. Is there a preferred alternative way of getting
'gobject' in python?
