This is definitely worth getting in the distro, pending the issues

Could you package the latest 0.6.13? The layout of the binary package
doesn't look right, but that may have to do with the older version.
I can't rebuild the package from source, nor am I interested in wading
through an entire script to figure out what's wrong. Here is what I'm
using for Ports:

I would use category: Devel Python; it's not a general-purpose library.
There is also a misspelling of 'original'.

Gentoo and Fedora do this as well, so this naming is correct.
