Well, I am reluctant to separate the python module from the binary, as 
the python module doesn't seem to be useful without the binary.

I've got another issue, that is cocotb requires find_libppython module, 
which is used to find libpython on the system, so should I package 
find_libpython, which doesn't seem to be needed on Debian, just for the 
sake of cocotb ? Or should I just patch cocotb and put some simplified code 
(tailored for Debian) that finds path to libpython ?
