Re: [opensuse-packaging] d:l:p : drop-in replacement for python-gmp

If it's truly a drop-in replacement you're .spec should include a
"provides: python-gmp" so existing packages which require: python-gmp
will pick it up.

Note that a unversioned Provides of another package name is generally
considered evil, as it kills versioned requires.

(It would be much nicer if python packages would autogenerate "module"
dependencies like with perl or ruby, so that other packages could require
module names instead of a package names.)
