I would not say the earlier helpers failed.  Given the number of packages that
use(d) them, they were clearly successful!  Things were learned though, and
newer technology came along that addressed some of the less desirable design
aspects of the earlier helpers.

My prediction is that the "less desirable design aspect" that will obsolete
dh_python2 is going to be the fact that it only supports an ancient and rarely
used version of Python <wink>.
