    Python: version bumped to 2.6.
    The major theme of Python 2.6 is preparing the migration path to Python
    3.0, a major redesign of the language. Whenever possible, Python 2.6
    incorporates new features and syntax from 3.0 while remaining compatible
    with existing code by not removing older features or syntax.
    Some significant new packages have been added to the standard library,
    such as the multiprocessing and json modules, but there aren't many new
    features that aren't related to Python 3.0 in some way.
    Python 2.6 also sees a number of improvements and bugfixes throughout the
    source. A search through the change logs finds there were 259 patches
    applied and 612 bugs fixed between Python 2.5 and 2.6.
