A question in this part -- should the source package name still not be
For debian python team, source package names are module names however
the binaries have a python3- prefixed, as seen in the policy as well[1]

Prominent examples for example are numpy and numba which do not have a
python- in their source package names.

Is it instead a matter of personal taste or do I miss something?
