[Pkg-fonts-devel] Bug#575753: python-fontforge: only compiled against python 2.5

I think that this is almost impossible. Fontforge does not have the
usual extension modules to bind FontForge program with python. All
FontForge libraries (libfontforge, libgutils and libgunicode) are
compiled and linked against a specific version of the python. And only
two very small and simple extension modules (fontforge and psMat) are
designed to bind theses libraries with python. So we would have all the
fontforge program with all its libraries to compile a few times and do
something very significant package. And who needs them? Is not enough
that the program works with the current default Debian Python version?
