Personally, I want one helper.  The consistency will make life much easier for
new packagers, for documentation, and for helping focus the community on
fixing bugs, adding features, and improving the state of the art.

Even though it will eventually all be made moot by the retirement of Python 2
<wink>, I think that dh_python2 provides the most benefit, and is the easiest
to use.  So I would personally like to see this community rally behind it as
the One True Way.

As my previous message stated, we're on a mission to remove python-support and
python-central from the Ubuntu CDs.  Officially deprecating python-support in
Debian would make our lives easier. :)
