[Build-common-hackers] CDBS and Python without distutils?

I'm going to package software, that is in parts written in Python.
Of course, I like to have the .pyc files generated at installation
time, as easily cared for by dh_python.  Unfortunately, dh_python
is only called by one CDBS script, python-distutils.mk.  How can
I use CDBS for Python software without setup.py(*)?

Cheers, WB

(*) Yes, I can just add a simple setup.py.  It's not difficult.
    But maybe there are alternatives I'm not aware of.
