you do not need 2.9.4+dfsg1-2.2 in jessie. 2.9.1 works fine. everything up to and including 2.9.3 is fine. only 2.9.4 and up to 2.9.4+dfsg1-2.1 are broken.

broken versions: 2.9.4 - 2.9.4+dfsg1-2.1. avoid these, all others work fine.

install python-googleapi from jessie-backports. you need it to be at least version 1.5.0. I'll add the right dependency in the next release.
