This is unnecessary [1], the package doesn't provide any extension, just modules.

But it is helpful nevertheless, as it makes python2.6-dmedia and python2.7-dmedia available for apps.

Would you mind to switch the packaging to use dh_python2 instead of pyhon-support?

Not at the moment, I personally prefer python-support over dh_python2. That's why I am sticking to dh7 for now.

Would you care to elaborate a bit. Not that I disagree, I simply lack knowledge on differences between those Python packaging helpers.\

The biggest reason why I am using pysupport is because I am familiar with it. That's the reason why I would like to get this one to use it, for now at least.

Ah, ok.  Makes sense.

Also, I heard rumors that switching from one Python helper to another may require special transitioning code in preinst/postinst. Not sure about the details - would appreciate pointers if anyone else knows.
