I think that the correct syntax for this would be
PYTHON_DEPEND="2:2.6" if I'm reading the docs for
_python_parse_PYTHON_DEPEND() correctly.

Are you installing a python module or just something which uses
python? For a module, you will need to define PYTHON_RESTRICT_ABIS to
"2.[1-5] 3" after setting SUPPORT_PYTHON_ABIS=1 and doing all the
magic to support multiple ABIs (which might be none if you're using
distutils).

There is useful information at
http://www.gentoo.org/proj/en/Python/developersguide.xml too.
