        I guess I do not understand enough about python-support, in
 that case. I was basing it off section 2.3 of the draft policy[1],
 which has inclusions of XB-Python-Version as a should directive.

        Could you point me to documentation on python-support, what it
 does, how to use it, and how it differs from python-central?

        Targeted for dev-ref, no.  If python policy is ever going to
 be made into official Debian technical policy, then some kind of
 detailed specification

        I think that this is of general enough interest to involve
 -devel; but I do not want to miss out Python folks who have given up
 on -devel, and this is of interest to Python packaging. So, in my
 opinion, cross posting for this is jusified as long as the discussion
 stays on topic.
