Hi guys,

currently most Python packages in the Build Service are inconsistently
named. For instance, upstream 'pyenchant' is named python-enchant,
'Cheetah' is named python-cheetah. There are plenty of other examples.
I'd like to propose a different scheme (much like our Ruby and Perl

* Python application packages are named like $UPSTREAM_NAME
* Python libraries are named python-$UPSTREAM_NAME

Sascha, what are other projects like Debian, Ubuntu and Fedora doing? Let's
talk with other rpm based distros on whether we can implement the same
scheme - this make cross-distribution building much saner...

This is a good idea, python-python-twitter looks really counter-intuitive
though, maybe there should be an exception if the package already has a
python- prefix.
