if it's an empty file (or can be removed, as most probably in this case)
you can tell dh_python2 to handle the namespace for you with:

 	dh_python2 --namespace backports

For Python 3, __init__.py is not needed anymore, so you can simply
remove it in both packages by creating debian/python3-foo.pyremove file
with "backports/__init__.py"

that's how Python works, nothing to do with pybuild
