I have the opposite view, and I very much prefer to prefix with
"python-" all of the source packages I upload, when that's a python
module (I don't do that for applications).

One very good reason for this is sorting the files when you do "ls", or
in your QA page, on gitweb/cgit, etc. Also, not polluting the general
namespace is a good idea.
