Hmm, to clarify: really every one, or "just" every one that installs files 
into versioned python dirs and/or depends on versioned python(abi)?

If a package installs some *.py, *.pyc, *.pyo somewhere else than in versioned 
python dirs, and the source *.py is python 2.6 compatible, will the *.pyc and 
*.pyo compiled with 2.5 break with 2.6?  For example, is it 
necessary/beneficial to rebuild packages like rpmlint (all its python code is 
either in /usr/bin or /usr/share/rpmlint)?
