Re: Packaging applications with extensions modules

* you can ship extensions for more than one 3.x version in the
same private directory, thanks to tags
Does dh_python3 support such setup? (I would be very surprised if
I gave it a try, and it appears to work, provided that upstream build
system supports ABI tagging. Wow. :-)
dh_python3 does rewrite extension names with the tags. As an example,
python-qt4 uses this.
If you install multiple non-tagged extensions to a private directory,
they'll have overwritten each other before dh_python3 will have a chance
to rename them.
We'll have this problem also for build systems which install stuff to
/usr/lib/python3/dist-packages/, but don't support PEP3149...
