Re: www/py-bottle should not use suffix .py for binaries

> Some time ago I created a package for conan in wip/py-conan.

So when conan_server tries to import bottle it looks for it (as it should) in $PROFIX/lib/python3.7/site-packages but first in the directory from which the binary was started, i.e. $PREFIX/bin.

I agree, .py suffix for binaries is problematic.
I've changed the package as you requested.
