I have a package called pyecm where the upstream distributes a pyecm.py

If pyecm will be installed under /usr/bin then yes, it won't have the
.py extension

Which of these should I do in order to comply with standards and good

Leave the orig.tar.gz as it is and install pyecm.py as pyecm (don't
use preinst to do this).
I don't know how is the install system of this program and how you are
creating the package, but generally it's simple to install a file with
another name or rename it, when creating the package.

Good luck!
