bzr-svn is pure-python and so is available for all Python versions
installed on the system, while subvertpy is only built for Python2.6
in Lucid. Trying to clone a repository over http using bzr triggers
bzr-svn and subvertpy to be loaded.

Similar to this, bzr's C extensions are only built for Python 2.6 on
Lucid so update-sourcecode will perform worse than possible when running
with Python2.5.

Both came from current Lucid.
