buxy replied to this. I would add by having a method selector we can in
the end remove the obsoleted method when this comes, as nothing else
(from a user point of view) is method-specific.

As python package don't have to match python-* in all cases (apps
don't), i conclude this is wrong in such cases, and superflous in other
ones. With no comment from people on IRC when i asked, i decided to
leave this untouched.

They all are available in unstable now. You can find in my web directory
2 examples (soya and editobj), where, besides bugs in pysupport or
pycentral, are well built using an updated version of the class :
buxy also tested 3 packages :

In needed_tools/ you'll find the corresponding cdbs package i intend to
upload if you have no objection (or you may upload it yourself if you
prefer). But please be quick, we are close to the release team deadline.
