I wouldn't mind seeing a custom PyGame for Sugar (let's call it sugargame).
Ryan Gordon made a GTK backend for SDL which would allow the PyGame display
to coexist with GTK widgets. Also, Nirav Patel has written a sweet
PyGame camera module which supports object tracking etc. There's probably a
bunch of other useful stuff that could be rolled into PyGame beyond what
the (unmaintained) OLPCGames wrapper provides.
