How to deal with Python script
I've got a package of teepeedee shortly arriving in Debian via a sponsor.
It's a small package which contains a Python "helper" script
'teepeedee-share' to help with a basic configuration. As far as I can tell,
I have the following options:
1. Add a Depends: on Python
2. Remove 'teepeedee-share' from the .deb
3. Put teepeedee-share in a separate package
4. Replace the 'teepeedee-share' with a shell wrapper, which calls the script
if Python exists
I don't like 1. because Python is much bigger than teepeedee, and
teepeedee-share is not central to the package.
I don't like 2. because I might as well provide teepeedee-share if I can.
3. is just silly
I like 4. and it is what I have implemented, but my sponsor is
not so keen.
This thing must have come up many times before, but I can't find any
references. Does anyone have any good ideas?
