Well, relative to other languages, I think Python's had the most changes with
regards to build helper tools -- there was dh_pycentral, and dh_pysupport in the
past which did more or less the same thing in different ways, and now we have
dh_python2, and dh_python3. In contrast, Mono stuff have only had the dh_cli*
set of things, and Java only had the javahelper bunch of things.

Kind regards,
