I think that's a bit more cacophonic and redundant and usually you will
find a lot of Python packages were the extra `python-' is removed.

According a quick grep via:

 % ag -l -G Makefile -F 'MASTER_SITE_PYPI:=p/python-'

there are 34 packages in total with a `python-' prefix but in the
pkgsrc tree only 5 preserved the PKGPATH with `python-'.

At least in the previous list I think that:

 * lang/py-python-lua
 * lang/py-pythonz
 * www/py-python-digest
 * www/py-python3-digest

are in some ways special as all of them - when used through Python -
needs an `import python*' or similar (and also the `EGG_NAME' starts
with a `python').
