 It's much less like Perl-5/Perl-6, IMO, but even if you convince FESCo
of this mental contortion and you have dual sets of _every_ python
module. The API is very similar and uses the same shared library
name ... so what do you do about all the C programs that link with
libpython?

repoquery --whatrequires 'libpython2.5.so.*'
