Sorry, no docs are available for now.
However I got more information from some other PAPT/DPMT teams
members, and here is a short summary:

  * Definitely dh_python{2,3] is the way of the future and it will
replace all the other helpers.
  * Basically, switching from pycentral to dh_python2 is painless.
  * Switching fom python-support -> dh_python{2,3] needs to try to
"import $module" (for _each_ module).
    Note that it could be a mess if there are packages which share the
same namespace.

In both cases, if the package provides only programs or private
modules, there should not be any worry.

As shown here [1], squeeze already provides dh_python2.
