Weird. That Debian libieee1284* package maintainer(s) seem to manage
fine without a Python (run-time) dependency.
Looking closer, the Python build-time dependency is only needed if
you insist on building the Python bindings for the library. You could
have just dropped those and still provide the C library ...
