Hi people,

I made substantial progress in the Python 2.7 switch and uploaded a bunch of
new packages to the testing repository.  See the wikipage for the updates[1].

The gdal-python package is also included.  It was created by rebuilding just
the bindings from source and merging everything in from the previous package,
which I consider a temporary solution.

I suppose the packaging of the bindings is normally handled, when the GDAL
package itself is built.

It was just the last obstacle that kept me from building a QGIS package with
Python 2.7 - which is up next...
