The default Python version at build-time should probably be made explicit
(so right now it would be python3 (>= 3.7), python3 (<< 3.8)) and updated
by a binNMU when the default changes. It probably needs to pass options
to dh_python3, so that dh_python3 will find its private modules.
gobject-introspection.deb is a set of command-line tools that has private
Python code (with a C extension) as an implementation detail, not an
independently importable Python library, so I don't think it makes a whole
lot of sense to compile it for all supported Python versions in parallel.
Is this urgent to fix? I was hoping to get a bit more progress on the
libffi7 transition (in particular a fix for #950219) before uploading
