Bug 788514 (dh_python2 transition)

Hi folks,

We've made great progress on bug 788514, which transitions all of the
python-support and python-central dependent packages on our various *buntu CDs
to use dh_python2.  My thanks to everyone who submitted patches and uploaded
changes both to Ubuntu and Debian.

Since the original bug was filed, we've seen python-support become officially
deprecated in Debian (python-central already was), and many packages are
getting fixed there first, which is great.

We're almost there.  By my count, we have 31 packages still left to do, and
feature freeze will be here this Thursday.  At this point, I'm not going to
wait/sync on Debian, though of course we should still submit bug reports and
patches to them for any such changes in Ubuntu.

If you'd like to help us cross the finish line, please ping me on
#ubuntu-devel or #ubuntu-pyjam.  I'll help answer questions, review patches,
or sponsor uploads.  It would be really great if collectively, we can get all
the packages listed in the bug whiteboard finished by feature freeze.
