Indeed, modules in /usr/lib/site-python should be made to use the
default python version. This should be possible by rebuilding the
.py[co] files that are not in /usr/lib/python2.X in the python package,
instead of the python2.X package.

However, It would be mad to make such a deep change in our python
packages before the sarge release.
