+1 for python 2.6 that it is the default version in debian stable [0]...

Moreover, the Python 2.6 [1] added compatibility functions in a
future_builtins module and a -3 switch to warn about usages that will
become unsupported in 3.0...
Therefore if we require python2.6, we can start to think about
cleaning the python code and start to use the "future_builtins"

Concerning GRASS and python 3.X, I think that the biggest problem is
the WxPython, at the moment only the develop version Phoneix[2] it is
working with python 3.
