I now tested the flavored build, and it hereøs what seems to be needed 
to finish it up:

1) Check that python bindings lands in the correct places.  Use of CDBS 
autotools-python snippet for that was dropped: Its per-python-version 
flavoring clashed with our custom flavors and should be unneeded since 
there should never be more than a single python(2) version since python 
2.6 support was dropped in Debian.

2) Adjust install hints to pick from its new locations below 
debian/tmp/{x,nox} (not debian/tmp).

I find debdiff to be a useful inspection aid.
