I suggest that you print PYTHON_PATH and look at the content that
snapcraft has there. I doubt that the python plugin resolves
dependencies from stage-packages at build time.

I suggest if you can't get that one working that you use the one I
pointed you about. In addition, it's a continuation of the one you will
demo as part of the conference and build upons multiple concepts:
- mutiple sources (some local, some distant)
- good ordering of properties
- shortcuts and hints (.git enable stripping source-type)
- services and commands talking together
- local plugins.
