Not yet - I've checked this and current setup cannot generate
symbols for Python interpreter. I asked for this particularly
on debian-devel (on 2015-09-20) and Niels Thykier responded
that it's planned but not yet ready.

Do you mean just NMU of PyCUDA rebuilt with CUDA 6.5, or uploading
new version of PyCUDA? As for the former, it'd be good. For latter,
I've changed PyCUDA (and PyOpenCL, but it's not yet fully working)
to use pybuilder, so backporting it might be hard.

I know - I was waiting with removal of this to see whether I'd need
to upload PyCUDA during Python transition.
