I have one source package that has both a (C++) libary and Python
bindings for this libary. The Python bindings are in a subdirectory
named 'python'. It's not possible to build the bindings with the
current CDBS, as it only supports setup.py in $(DEB_SRCDIR). The
attached patch provides a new variable named DEB_PYTHON_DIR, which
defaults to '.'. The setup.py is assumed to be in
$(DEB_SRCDIR)/$(DEB_PYTHON_DIR). Furthermore, the patch invokes all
python versions in DEB_PYTHON_VERSIONS for the clean and build
targets, if DEB_PYTHON_REAL_LIB_PACKAGES is set. I'm not really sure I
got this part right, so please flame on ;-).

Corrections, suggestions, and flames are welcome, as well as
directions what o do to get this into cdbs (file a bug?).

Regards and thanks for your work on CDBS!
