The "etoys" package in Debian does not depend on Python, to my knowlege.
For that reason, the topic is perhaps a misnomer, as we're really
discussing "sugar-etoys-activity", which is the one that includes setup.py.
CDBS uses the setup.py file to install the software into the proper
directory of the package, so removing it would require CDBS rules to be
overridden, and would needlessly cause a deviation from the upstream
tarball. s-etoys-a depends on Sugar in order to work, which means that
it'll pull in Python deps anyway.
I do suspect, however, that the additional deps declared in debian/rules
on python-hippocanvas, python-gtk2, python-cjson are unneeded.
