 pythonx.y-dbg is ABI incompatible with pythonx.y and we need to bdep on
 pythonx.y-dbg to build a -dbg for a python extension -- these are *not*
 detached debugging symbols, but an alternate implementation of the
 module which will only work with debug versions of python.

 Because of this ABI difference, if you need to use python-foo to build
 python-bar, then you need a python-foo-dbg and to bdep on it to build
