Having the extensions available for the python-dbg interpreter is a huge help, 
when you really need to debug something, or else you start rebuilding every 
extension.  I cannot say how often these are used for this package, but 
extensions for the debug interpreter should be available for most commonly used 
extensions (like pygtk and python-qt).
