Python 2.6 can definitely work under squeeze; just add the
experimental section to your sources.list and apt-get install
python2.6; you shouldn't face too much trouble. Bear in mind, thoughm
that almost all modules are not yet built for Python 2.6, so you'd
have to rebuild those packages with several changes to your
environment to get things working with Python 2.6.
The same holds for Python 3.0.
