Python 2.6 Transition

Today I NMUed over a dozen of Python packages with bugs which blocked the Python 2.6 transition.

I really want to thank Kumar Appaiah for his work. He provided patches for all the bugs I NMUed today and lots more. I really did not much more than applying, testing and uploading his patches, but Kumar probably invested days of labor to create the patches and test them. Thanks to his effort, the number of 2.6-blockers shrinked considerably so that we now have like \~15 open blockers and \~50 closed ones!
