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?

Packages need to be updated for python 2.6
