Yes, that would be nice.  The package currently build-depends on
python2.4-dev, *and* an python-dev | python-all-dev; simplifying that can
only be a win.

BTW, the previous patch didn't work, I made the mistake of thinking that the
sonames were being set from within debian/rules when the complex logic in
debian/rules was apparently just there to keep pace with upstream.  So
that's a factor in not dropping the explicit "g++-4.2" build-dep for now.

The attached patch works quite a bit better, and is what I'll upload if it
finishes checking out here.
