I think migrating without shipping parallel versions of Python at any point
is a completely unrealistic dream. Just look at how many packages still
depend on qt3 and kdelibs3, and how there are still packages depending on
gtk+-1.2 even when plans for GTK+ 3 are already ongoing. We have no reason
to believe Python will be any different.
