I do things a little differently, at least for the maintenance releases.
The email packages in the sandbox svn:external the library from the
appropriate Python branch.  The rest of the sandbox serves as a
repository for all the chrome around releases, e.g. generated docs,
setup.py, etc.

For email 4.0 I did things a little different, treating it more like a
dev branch until it was stable enough to merge back into the trunk
(which reminds me, I have to twiddle the sandbox to svn:external it

In general though, I think the sandbox is a great place to develop and
release standalone packages that are also integrated with Python.  So if
you wanted to do something similar for pysqlite I'd be totally fine with
