If you set PYTHON_VERSION_REQD=27 it fails. Just setting the default
will cause it to think it should build for the first matching

I'm not sure what PYPACKAGE does...
It is possible that py-setuptools44 should reject python3, because
even though it builds fine that's almost certainly not what you
wanted. If you juggle versions wrong, you can get it by mistake and I
suspect it (uselessly) appears in bulk runs.
