It seems to me that it's a bad idea to make this change in sid while the old 
python packages are frozen in etch.  The result will be: if anybody uploads 
updated versions of their python packages, they will get autobuilt against 
the sid packages and thus have no 2.3 contact, which is out of sync with what 
would happen with people wanting to hand-build their packages locally using 

I think you should decide whether you want python2.3 to be supported in etch 
or not.  If you do, you should revert the changes in sid until after the etch 
release; if you don't, you need to ask the release team to let the new python 
packages into etch despite the freeze of "base toolchain" packages, and also 
prepare a list of appropriate binNMU's needed to sync up the packages in sid 
with this change.

I'm Cc'ing debian-release to get their opinion on this issue (since I don't 
see any discussion on this in a quick search of the list archives for the 
last month).
