no, apparently it's not used (anymore?).

For the support of the python debug interpreter you need the -dbg packages. I
would avoid the -dbgsym packages at all. the -dbg packages should have the
unstripped debug extensions, and the symbol info for the normal extension. Then
no need for a dbgsym package.
