the built package has the minimum python dependencies already, but
you're right that it doesn't include the maximum deps (e.g. Depends:
doesn't say  python (<< 2.8) ).

This seems like a packaging bug that is a reasonable candidate for a
lintian check.  I'm happy to submit such a wishlist bug to lintian.  Can
you help me characterize the problem?

Would it be a reasonable test to say that the following test is an
indication of the bug?

 A) in debian/control: if the source package build-depends on
python-all, but any of the binary package stanzas do not have Depends:

 or would it be better to describe buggy packages as:

 B)  debian/rules mentions --with-python2, but any binary package in
debian/control does not have Depends: ${python: Depends}

or is there some other better formulation?
