This is RC, and makes telepathy-idle unbuildable in unstable, because
the python package has already been removed. It doesn't seem to be up for
autoremoval yet, perhaps because polari is relatively high-popcon, although
I suspect polari will decline rapidly now that the GNOME metapackages no
longer pull it in.

When uploading (whether maintainer or NMU) to fix this, there are several
easy fixes that can be applied at the same time. I've sent a merge request
(or see attached diff).

Note that I have only build-tested this, because I no longer use
Telepathy, so an -idle user should test it before upload.
