Jessie freeze. I've addressed this with a clarification followup

Public classes in << 0.9 were re-named in 0.9. The attempt at
providing backward compatibility is insufficient (the names that did
refer to classes now refer to factory functions only).

I will address the rest of your points in a post to ‘debian-python’,
for those who are interested.
