Since I didn't receive an answer on my question I summarize what I
found. Python 2.6 will definitely not become the standard Python for
Squeeze. It is also very unlikely that it will enter unstable soon as
far as I understood due the way 2.6 handles site packages and the
resulting packaging issues.
Someone asked for a list of open issues so people can jump in and try to
help to solve the issues so 2.6 can at least be in Squeeze, but
apparently this list does not exist.
Python 2.6 is available in experimental, but not very useful so far
since most of the bindings are not built for 2.6.
