[osgeo4w-dev] python 2.7 as default: would anything significant break?

Hi there,

I updated my pending packages (except python-rpy2 and qgis) and hijacked
wxpython.  Following packages are still open:

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

Does GRASS actually need to be rebuilt for the new python?  Isn't having
wxpython available enough?

I installed the GRASS package and it seems to work (although I needed to set
WINGISBASE manually - not sure if that isn't a general issue).

Frank Warmerdam volunteered for these. Not sure if you remember - that was long

Still vacant:

> liblas-python 	? 	you? 		?
> mapfish_framework 	? 	you? 		?
> mapnik 		? 	you? 		2.6, no 2.7

And also:

> python-rpy2

Do we actually need this?  Seems there are not prebuilt binaries for Python 2.7
and we already have python-rpy.
