Package: python
Version: 2.3.2-6
Severity: serious
Justification: Makes the package unsuitable for release

Hi,
I apologize if this has already been reported, since the BTS is down 
following yesterday's break-in.

Upgrading python on my powerpc (tracking Debian/unstable) from 2.3.2-4 to
2.3.2-6 via aptitude fails with the following long string of messages:
