here's the list of architecture dependent python3 modules, which need looking at
for raring. I did look at ones with interesting build systems.
- pygobject (autoconf based) installs extensions without a
proper abi tag. the renaming in the packaging was broken.
- py3cairo's waflib build system does safe information out of
build dir, again, fixed in the packaging (and did need a 3.3
Others like python-apt using distribute just die because of missing 3.3
The list may contain packages which only build for the the default python
version, however this cannot be seen by just looking at the metadata.
