The use of dh_python is specific to the Debian package. python-central,
python-support & dh-python* are all Debian package helpers for Python.

The dh_python approach is currently the recommended best practice. There
is also pybuild for building Python software in Debian, that can be used
instead of the upstream build system. Like dh_python it supports all the
Debian specific Python changes.


pybuild is ideal for building pure Python modules, if Python is only a
part of a larger build process, it may not be better to stick to the
upstream build system.
