Confirm needed: python2.3 (thus lots of other stuff) uninstallable from etch?

Can anyone else confirm this:

} stax:/etc/apt# apt-get install python2.3
} Reading package lists... Done
} Building dependency tree... Done
} Package python2.3 is not available, but is referred to by another package.
} This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
} is only available from another source
} However the following packages replace it:
}   python
} E: Package python2.3 has no installation candidate
} stax:/etc/apt# apt-get install python   
} Reading package lists... Done
} Building dependency tree... Done
} Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have
} requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable
} distribution that some required packages have not yet been created
} or been moved out of Incoming.
} Since you only requested a single operation it is extremely likely that
} the package is simply not installable and a bug report against
} that package should be filed.
} The following information may help to resolve the situation:
} The following packages have unmet dependencies.
}   python: Depends: python2.3 (>= 2.3.5-1) but it is not installable
} E: Broken packages

Because of this, tons of stuff, from reportbug to GNOME, is uninstallable
for me.  My sources.list mirrors are:

} deb http://debian.csail.mit.edu/debian-amd64/debian/ etch main contrib
} deb-src http://debian.csail.mit.edu/debian-amd64/debian/ etch main contrib
} deb http://mirror.espri.arizona.edu/debian-amd64/debian/ etch main contrib
} deb-src http://mirror.espri.arizona.edu/debian-amd64/debian/ etch main contrib

Can anyone else confirm this?
