IMO one of the packages can be removed. I guess yours could be updated
using the current python2 which the blink package of speps is based
on. On the other hand, upstream is not offering its software through a
channel different from darcs, which leads me to favoring a package
name without a postfix. please come to an agreement with speps, and/or
let your package be removed to blink-python26...
