Re: Next python-mote pre-condition - issue with pybuild: python-backports.tempfile conflicting python-backports.weakref

that requires a lot of coordination with all the other backports
packages. currently (well, before tempfile) there was no package
installing backports/__init__.py and every package was (correctly)
using dh_python2 --namespace

simple, he didnt :/

Andreas, please re-upload backports.tempfile using dh_python2
--namespace so taht this package will nicely fit with the existing
backports packages.
