Depends: python2.5, python-avc (>=new_policy_version)

Joss, python2.5-avc is not in new policy spirit. Think about this
situation: Fabrizio is uploading this package now, it provides
python2.4-avc and python2.5-avc. Some packages are depending on
python2.4-avc and then 2.4 is removed from supported Python versions.
Should Fabrizio upload new version just because 2.4 is no longer
supported? Should he upload new version when 2.6 will be added?
What with package that still depends on python2.4-avc?
Why do we have python-central and python-support then?

Please note that I'm talking about architecture *independent* packages.
Architecture dependent package *have to* provide pythonX.Y-module.

Fabrizio: you're added, welcome in the team :-)
