additional notes:
if you use private directories, instead of "--install-layout=deb", you
can use set of other options (like --install-lib) - this will ease
backporting your package to Lenny. If you don't use private directories,
just use python-support >= 1.0 which is checking for Python files in
lots of places (including /usr/{,local}/python*/{site,dist}-packages).
