I discovered how this selinux-python package was organized 2 weeks ago,
while packaging it for OpenWRT. And just like what I did with this 30
patches patch series, which comes from the work I did packaging SELinux
for OpenWRT, it was also on my TODO-list to improve selinux-python in
Buildroot. But as you can imagine, this TODO-list is also filled up
with plenty of other things, so I don't know when I'll get to it.
