Re: Comments regarding pyimport-relative_0.1.0-1_amd64.changes

mh, probably I'm missing something:

- is pyimport-relative only available for 2.4?
- is pyimport-relative an incompatible implementation of relative
imports as present in python >=2.5 ?
- would it be possible to "port" to relative import as in python >=
2.5 and declare pydbgr as only available for >= 2.5 (Lenny has 2.5 as

IMHO, either use the relimp as in python >= 2.5 or don't use at all
(as Piotr just suggested).
