EmPy is a system for embedding Python expressions and statements
in template text; it takes an EmPy source file, processes it, and
produces output.
This is accomplished via expansions, which are special signals
to the EmPy system and are set off by a special prefix (by default
the at sign, '@').  EmPy can expand arbitrary Python expressions
and statements in this way, as well as a variety of special forms.
Textual data not explicitly delimited in this way is sent unaffected
to the output, allowing Python to be used in effect as a markup
Also supported are "hook" callbacks, recording and playback via
diversions, and dynamic, chainable filters.
The system is highly configurable via command line options and
embedded commands.
This is the Python 2 version of the package. This version installs
the empy executable under the name "empy"

* Make both empy versions, python2 and python3, coinstallable. The binary
empy provided by python3 is now renaming under the empy3. This allow to
run empy on python2 code (using empy executable) or on python3 code
(using empy3 executable). (Closes: #755113).
