Ok, some things I consider bugs with the current state of the
transition and I would have expected in a "Status of the Python
- way of expressing dependencies on a particular version of python
- support of rtupdate scripts
- support of pure python2.3 modules (raised on debian-python@ last

An example of what I would have expected to find on the page I describe
is: what to do when your package ships both private extensions and
private modules; solution a) could be to configure the package with a
--libexecdir or similar containing the name of the python runtime and
build it multiple times, solution b) could be to only build for one
version of python.
