We'd also need 'real' gdal bindings.

apt 			yes 	Matt Wilkie 	-
qgis 			yes 	Jürgen Fischer 	-

Those are just waiting for the switch.

grass 			yes 	Martin Landa 	-
grass-devel 		? 	Martin Landa 	-

Not sure.   Probably waiting for the following:

wxpython 		? 	Martin Landa 	-

Not sure about it's state.  Same for the rest:

liblas-python 		? 	you? 		?
mapfish_framework 	? 	you? 		?
mapnik 			? 	you? 		2.6, no 2.7
mapscript-dev-python 	? 	you? 		?
mapscript-python 	? 	you? 		?
python-rpy2 		? 	Jürgen Fischer 	2.6, no 2.7

I don't use them.
