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
