Shouldn't the package all both versions to co-exist?  (At least one other
package, py-expat, allows both versions.)

I don't know how to do that: packages will try to call "gdbus-codegen", not
some other binary name. Normally these are just required during build, i.e.,
these are "just" build dependencies.

Why do you need two versions?

Because packages that use gtk2+ need py27 (explicitly marked as being incompatable with py36), while other packages that use atk and pango are being built with py36. I'd like to eventually move everything to py36 but we're not there yet.

Dual-versions works for py-expat ...
