Include python-distutils.mk and declare binary packages with leading
"python3-" in addition to the "python-" one, and the included snippet
automagically invokes the correct Python binary and helper tool.
See sleekxmpp as an example.

snippets for the various build systems. But will be great if they can
be greatly simplified (over time - better not break backwards
compatibility too hastily even if freuently broken in python packages
