[Build-common-hackers] Bug#204843: cdbs: python-distutils should use versioned python everywhere

Package: cdbs
Severity: important

I am maintaining a python2.2-only package (python-bz2). I build-depend
on python2.2-dev for dist-utils and python-headers. CDBS calls
/usr/bin/python for building the package, so I had to use python2.3-dev
after python2.3 becoming the default version. But this is not feasible
because my package just won't build against python2.3. So
common-build-impl should run something like python$(cdbs_python_ver) as
in the install targets. I believe there will be more packages with that

Cheers, Joerg
