There's neither. The module is in "fonttools". Which is why I asked

in my initial report. (But yes, python-fonttools/python3-fonttools would make sense,
but then fonttools probably should depends on the python3 thingy and people who need
the python2 module can build-depend on python-fonttools. Or does stuff use stuff
from fonttools _and a different_ python version?
