Re: Python packages with python26 subpackages

I did not think about splitting the BUILD_ROOT's per Python version,
but it seems easy enough to implement and add to the future documentation.

As for the elixir package this should of been closed out as a python-elixir package
already exists in EPEL, It was also brought up at a EPEL #fedora_meeting that dual 
packaging is discouraged but never officially denounced.

I would suggest contacting BJ Dierkes regarding the wiki,
he was the individual responsible for implementing multiple_python_os_install_post in to Python26
and has the most familiarity with said feature.
