The changes to the struct module in PEP 3118 should be backported to 2.6
as it is backward compatible and would smooth the transition to 3.0.  It
is lower priority and could wait until 2.7

This risks missing 2.x if nobody adopts the implementation of PEP 3118
in 3.x: 2.7 might be the last 2.x release.

It's too late to backport any new features to 2.x.
