`man dh_python2` has some, but it's mostly... in my head (looking for
someone who will document all the small features like pkg.pyinstall¹ or
PyDist² in the manpage)

I want³ all python-central and python-support packages to be converted to
dh_python2 in Wheezy, dunno if others will agree to do that. At least
for Python 3 we have one helper only and I updated pycentral/pysupport
to ignore python3-foo binary packages.

done (without touching debian/changelog)
