[Python-modules-team] Bug#919008: python3-pdfminer: should depend on python3-pycryptodome, not recommend python3-crypto

Package: python3-pdfminer
Version: 20181108+dfsg-2

Dear maintainer,

pdfminer.six's setup.py says that it requires pycryptodome, so I would
expect to see

    Depends: python3-pycryptodome

but instead there is

    Recommends: python3-crypto

which seems to be wrong in two ways:

1) it is a recommends, not a hard depends, but in setup.py it is listed
   as 'required'

2) it is -crypto, rather than the -cryptodome fork.

I note that python3-pycryptodome is broken (#886291) and is not likely
to be fixed before the transitions freeze, but I am not really sure
whether that bug blocks this one or not.  Please excuse my limited
knowledge of python library packaging.
