Those 2 are actually one. python-debfile was a proposed addition to
python-debian and has since long been integrated into the latter.

python-debian aims to be a bundle of Python libraries to deal with
Debian-specific file formats. As such I would consider it to be the
official tool (disclaimer: but I'm one of the maintainers, so my
judgment is biased for sure!).

Note that for some of its jobs, python-debian at times uses external
libraries as, for example, python-apt.

python-debian aims at unifying stuff, maybe it's just not so widespread
