Hi all,

Now I understand why some days later somebody (Reiner) asked me to enable the python3
package :)

Two things, the package is called binwalk, but provides a python3 binding.
I renamed it to python3-binwalk, just to be sure people are aware of the bindings
(I still provide the old binwalk binary package, even if now it is empty).

It will go in binary-new queue, so please wait for it to be accepted!

BTW I tried to install binwalk from unstable/testing and I did a:

$ python3 -c "import binwalk"

(so even without waiting for the new python3-binwalk, you can already test your code
