Does anyone know of a reason why it should stay?
After removing the PYTHON_VERSIONS_ACCEPTED line of their makefiles, I
was able to build sysutils/salt and textproc/py-pdf-parser with python
2.7 with no apparent issues. Those two package akefiles should be updated.
lang/py-psyco did indeed fail with python 2.7 with the errors:
c/mergepoints.c:242: error: `JUMP_IF_FALSE` undeclared here (not in a

I went to the homepage (http://psyco.sourceforge.net/) which states:
"Psyco is unmaintained and dead. Please look at PyPy for the
state-of-the-art in JIT compilers for Python." (!!)
So I propose that lang/py-psyco be removed, the other two packages have
their restrictions lifted, and then remove python2.6 as well.
I think we should only have two versions of python in pkgsrc (2.x and
3.x) but I'll leave 3.1 alone for another day. :)
