bzr*: add pythonXX variants

Port: bzr bzr-explorer bzr-fastimport bzr-git bzr-gtk bzr-pager bzr-rebase bzr-rewrite bzr-svn bzr-xmloutput bzrtools


Can bzr and its child ports be modified to have the standard python26, python27, etc. variants? I see that they were switched to python27 recently, but having a choice would be much preferable.

bzr and related ports all need to use the same python version. As we cannot depend on specific variants special checks are required to make sure it will always work as expected. I decided not to maintain different variants of python, but go with the latest 2.x release instead.

Is there any feature you would gain besides reducing the number of python ports installed?

No feature gain. Indeed I am trying to reduce the number of installed pythons to 1.

I have a problem with bzr support for trac. Trac works with python 2.6, the Trac Bazaar Plugin have eggs for python 2.6 either and, with bzr with python 2.7, I can't use it with trac.

To workaround the problem, I have created a local repo with checkout, changed the python dependencies version to 2.6 and... I hope it works... :)

As there is no way to keep the +pythonXY variants of all bzr related ports synchronized automatically, I am declining this enhancement request.
