[opensuse-packaging] singlespec python and SLE_12_SP2_Backports

In devel:languages:python, the new singlespec approach is causing
problems with SLE_12_SP2_Backports build target. The issue is that
this build target fails if a package includes files from any package
in SLE, and packages that have this problem include some really
critical ones like setuptools.

This is a problem because in most cases only the python2 versions of
the files are available from SLE, but the build failure means the
python3 versions do not get published. This results in critical
python3 packages needed for singlespec builds not being available.
Currently more than half of the packages are either disabled or
unresolvable, and that number is going to grow to almost every package
as the singlespec conversion continues.

The simplest solution would be to just disable that repo by default.
However, if there (or could be) some way to selectively disable
building python2 versions of specific packages just for that build
target it might be better.
