[Openstack-devel] Moving XenAPI python modules in a separate binary

Hi Mike and Jon,

If I do this:
dpkg -S /usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/XenAPI.py

then I can see that the XenAPI python package is in fact xcp-xapi. This
is quite annoying, because I will need it when building OpenStack nova,
but xcp-xapi depends on the Xen hypervisor, which I don't care about
when building Openstack. Said in another way: I'd like to avoid having
to put "xcp-xapi" as Build-Depends: for nova.

So I was wondering, would it be possible to have all python stuff
packaged in a separate binary, like python-xen-api or something like
that like python-xapi, python-xcp? (which one has your preference?)
