I think I know what you mean:

For py*-packages, i.e. the ones that are built by default for multiple
python versions, we usually rename bin/foo to bin/foo-${PYVERSSUFFIX},
to avoid them conflicting and allowing parallel installation of
multiple python versions of the same package/library.

We usually do not do this for packages that are just written in python
and do not provide a library that is used by other packages, see e.g.
