No, this is wrong. python2.6-argparse is fully intentional here. Quoting 
the changelog:

| * Change D-B to python2.6-argparse to force installation during build
|   (this would otherwise be satisfied by python2.7 which provides
|   python-argparse).

(I filed #689633, BTW.)

Maybe I could propose a better patch, but I don't know what you're 
trying to achieve. :)
