Martin v. Löwis <martin at v.loewis.de> added the comment:

If the feature to be provided is "multiple Python installations with the same prefix", then I suggest to generalize this beyond the debug build. One approach would be:

1. add a --bin-suffix configure option (Debian: set this to _d when creating the debug build)
2. expose this as sys.bin_suffix
3. use this in many more places than this patch does, e.g. for python3-config (python3_d-config?), python3.pc, idle3, pydoc3, 2to3, and anything else that either is a binary or refers to one.
