By looking at the dependencies, blender is not part of this transition,
because putting python-defaults 2.5 in testing does not render it
uninstallable. So feel free to upload.
As an aside matter, I have no idea, whether being compiled for python2.4
but allowing co-installability with another default python version is
the correct thing to do or not.
