You can recompile the debugger from sources for Python 1.6.  Since we
support 1.5.2 and 2.0 it's likely to compile w/o problems.  Details
on that are here:

You will need access to the Wing sources if you don't already,
which requires a non-disclosure agreement:

Alternatively, you can very likely debug under Python 2.0 with
your extension modules compiled for 1.6.  It'll complain about
mismatched APIs but in our experience so far most extension 
modules end up working reasonably when this is done.  However,
I don't have experience doing this specifically with 1.6 -> 2.0
so I'm not sure if you'll run into problems in that case.

Hope that helps.

Thanks,

Stephan Deibel
