I'm on the mass bug filing, but I need the tracker updated again.  And I need to
go through the suggestions here on the list how to work on things to make the
py2-rm issues more readable.  I didn't hear back from Piotr after DebConf, but I
think what we need is dh-python generating python2/python2.7 dependencies
instead of python dependencies, and maybe make shebang rewriting to
python2/python2.7 the default.
