Dear Maintainer,

Apologies for the slightly vague report. It turns out that when multiple python
versions are supported, the resulting python3-libxml package only contains the
extension module for the default version. Rather than try to figure out what is
going on, I just uploaded a change to Ubuntu that does not try at all to support
multiple supported versions of Python 3 (attached, but I guess that's not really
acceptable for Debian).
