Vim can, but not the way Debian currently packages libpython.  Also,
given the reasons I've already stated in this bug, enabling Vim's
dynamic loading of language bindings isn't something that I think is an
acceptable middle ground even though it would give a little more leeway
in your situation.

Unfortunately, I don't have any patches that can be tested.  It either
requires changing how libpython is packaged or seriously overhauling how
Vim implement dynamic loading of its language bindings.
