An option could be to put this into prjconf of Factory and other
distros?

Why other ditros? This is surely a factory thing.

packages using the new macros are strictly incompatible with older
distros.

What's your point then?

well, the primary reason for this incompatibility is the %python_module
macro, which i would need to add to said older distros.

the other macros can be solved in several ways, the most promising is
making and buildrequiring a "python-rpm-macros" package, that can be
either submitted to older distros, or copypac'd/linked to projects as
required.

crucially, this does not work for macros used in BuildRequires
which is the whole point of this thread?
