Your Debian must have an older Python, 1.5.2 or earlier. 2.0 or later have
setfirstweekday(). The best thing would be to install the latest Python. If
you can't, the 2.0 version of calendar.py is 1.5.2-compatible. Just copy the
2.0 version on top of the 1.5.2 version.

(BTW, I added setfirstweekday() and other improvements to calenday.py, and
I'm glad somebody is getting use out of it.)
