cannot hold the same file (even if __init__ is only an empty file), and at least 
one must be present (if you install only one).

I'm not a python expert but I expect the least-horrible way to do this would be 
to ship a package that only contained the __init__. Then have all the 
python-backports.* packages depend on it.
