Any CDBS Python package should be able to use the new install helper by 
simply removing its top DEB_PYTHON_SYSTEM line.  I am only hesitant to 
do it because it complicates backportability, and I suspect the message 
from the Python developers on need to switch fast is not unanimous and 
not well considered.

A few ones I am involved in that have switched already are...

  sleekxmpp (python-distutils)
  radicale (python-distutils)
  python-xklavier (python-autotools)
  lash (python-autotools)

Sure.  You just might have to poke me (several times) to get my 
attention, as I am involved in a lot (and have a lousy way of 
administrating my involvements).
