Well, I thought that it was only necessary to build vmtk against the
same version of Python as in the vtk package and since that package
uses "XS-Python-Version: current" I ended up with "2.6" since the
"current" keyword has been deprecated.

OK, I must have missed that part of the Debian Python Policy.

Yes, you are right. I will fix this in the next upload.
