  well in the postinst, byte compilation must be done _before_ the
service is started, and in the prerm service must be stopped before the
byte compilation results are purged.

  So if the order of dh_* scripts is the order in which they extend the
postinst (which is the order that makes sense to me at least) then
dh_python must come before.
