Ubuntu Jaunty deb depends on Python2.5

The .deb package on the site depends on Python version 2.5, whilst Jaunty ships with Python2.6 installed. Whilst this installs fine, it means that the user ends up with 2 versions of Python installed side by side necessarily.
Ubuntu have packaged the open-source edition in their package virtualbox-ose so that it only depends on the meta-package "python". Surely this could also be done for your edition? If you distribute compiled .pycs, then these could be remade under the Python 2.6 compiler and the dependancy changed
