Hmm, AFAICT python2.6 did not really happen in Debian yet because
Mathias is trying to not continue with the existing hacks that have
major issues when upgrading and wants to have a clean solution. AFAICS
that was already communicated in February [0] and was only really acted
on around DebConf [1]. You can blame everyone involved, but I think it
might be better to cooperate on fixing it instead.
