Thanks for the explanations. In the update-excuses for python2, I see

* out of date on m68k: python2-base, python2-dev, python2-tk, 
  python2-xmlbase (from 2.0-4) (but m68k isn't keeping up, so ignoring this

The "ignoring this problem" is because automatic builds are not keeping up
with m68k I guess. Does this mean, python2 would have been installed despite
m68k being out of date except for the fact that it causes some packages to
be uninstallable?
