While I've never actually tried it, it seems the metadata files used
for "whatprovides" reverse lookups might help:

1. Find all RPMs that drop files into '/usr/lib64/python2.7/' or
2. Categorise as a Python library if they *don't* drop files into "/usr/bin"
3. Categorise as a Python library if there's an RPM that drops similar
files into the python3.6 lib directories
4. Categorise as an application if neither 2 nor 3 apply

If it works in practice, such an approach would also help pick up
cases like libvirt-python, where a Py3 RPM exists, but isn't called
