Those changes are in alioth are broken.

The *module* should move, not the binaries.

So install the binaries (and whatever else, manpages for them etc.) in fonttools
but the *module* in python(3)-fonttools.

If you had python2 and python3 you would want to have them co-exist,
which wouldn't work when the binaries also are there. Besides that it also
violates the (python) policy.
