Python files doesn't statically go to python2.5/site-packages in RPM - it goes to the appropriate python version's location. See the Fedora 11 RPM I've rebuilt - it puts the files into python-2.6/site-packages.

If you follow the python policies for debian packages correctly, python version changes are taken care of by the upgrade process. I think there are options to specify what python version the package depends and some options would allow the package to be used with any python version.

See http://www.debian.org/doc/packaging-manuals/python-policy/ch-module_packages.html#s-specifying_versions

Problem is with packages using python2.5/site-packages folder. Python 2.6 will complain that libraries not found

Well, Payyans works well with Python 2.6 AFAICS.
Do you mean Python 3.0?
