I *think* I've at least submitted bugs to Debian for all the packages I fixed
when Ubuntu switched to Python 2.7 as default in 11.04.  Of course, I might
have missed some.  Also, more upstream packages are improving their Python 2.7
support, so sync'ing to new upstream releases will also fix many packages.
