As one of the people who deals with packaging python modules for
distributions, I'm sorry for not having spent more time looking into
this.  I simply haven't had the time lately.  One helpful resource for
engaging linux distributions is:

##distros on irc.freenode.net and their mailing list:

Both are low traffic but people from the various linux distributions are
watching and responding on it even if they don't make much noise on
their own.  Just bear in mind that sometimes they will need to connect
you with the right person within their distro rather than being able to
give feedback directly.
