OK, done.

So I guess, before that (where dh_python2 refused to operate at all), using 
/usr/lib/aminer as a shorthand - as the package name is quite long - was a bad 

As import names cannot contain a dash, is use of 
"usr/lib/logdata-anomaly-miner/aminer" as module storage directory and "aminer" 
as shorthand module name in imports OK?

OK. Understood. Using the "usr/lib/logdata-anomaly-miner" layout for python 
stuff as recommended above, dh_python2 is more happy with the situation: It 
would complain about "python:Versions" substitution in

./debian/control:XB-Python-Version: ${python:Versions}

but XB-.. should be deprecated anyway. I dropped also " XS-Python-Version" 
(which was hardcoded to >=2.6), as substitution would not work here also.

Still when building, lintian is unhappy with the output package:

E: logdata-anomaly-miner: python-script-but-no-python-dep 
E: logdata-anomaly-miner: python-script-but-no-python-dep 

Since the situation became a lot of clearer using your suggestions, I will 
again try to tackle the lintian issue.
