binNMUs for python2.6


as you probably know, python2.6 has recently been added to supported
Python version in unstable [1].

I started to work to a list of packages to be binNMUed in order to
compile their extensions for 2.6, based on these criteria:
1) I looked for packages shipping .so files with site-packages or
   pyshared matches in their full path
2) I excluded arch:all false-positives packages
3) I excluded packages not depending on python-all-dev
4) I excluded packages with a XS-Python-Version field excluding 2.6 as a
   supported version for their extensions.
4) I excluded packages with a debian/pyversions excluding 2.6 as a
   supported version for their extensions.

First output of my elaboration can be found at [2], listing 294
source packages. Feel free to suggest packages to be added or removed.

I also prepared a list for Release Team [3], they want to wait for
python2.6 to migrate in testing before schedule binNMUs though, so we
have another week to work on the list and prepare for the next steps.
