and they are, but switching python helper or introducing a new package
are huge changes enough to require a consultation with the people that
are responsible for the package (the uploaders), which didn't happen.

explicit is better than implicit: file a bug against pyflakes,
explaining why you need a new package and what's the tool requiring it
- that's what I'd expected.

I'm disagreeing with the *way* you're doing such changes.

see above: team maintenance (even with team set to maintainer) doesn't
mean you can do whatever changes you see fit for the moment (and them
maybe disappear because you lost interest). small changes doesn't
require any ack from my side; adding new bin packages or changing
helper do.
