I had a go at it, but did not succeed to produce a working python-
singledispatch package. After installing python3-all and python3-setuptools
outside the pbuilder chroot (!) I could build a .deb, but this mysteriously
depends on a virtual package python-ordereddict which is not in Debian and I
do not know what package should provide that. As I do not understand how these
python dependencies work, I stopped there.
I did successfully install rpy2 in the presence of 3.2.0 from CRAN in a wheezy
chroot, using pip install. You need to install the development files for R,
python and readline as well, compare the rpy2 installation instructions.
If someone can give me a hand here, OK, otherwise I will have to remove
python-rpy2 from the wheezy-cran3 and squeeze-cran3 repositories (there it
does not work either I found). I did not notice as I do not currently use
