Of course, this only helps with extension module packages, since as you know, any incompatibilities with pure-Python packages can't be determined until install time. One of my next steps is to create a Maverick VM and install as much of the Python rdeps as possible, collecting information on what fails to byte-compile.
In sid there are two packages with python2.7-specific bytecompilation errors: mgltools-viewerframework and python-jaxml. Both packages do something like:
import sys sys.__debug__ = something which is a syntax error in Python 2.7. -- Jakub Wilk
