1) Assuming what users care about is risky business.
2) The 'app vs library' distinction is not sound here. It wasn't sound
for python package prefixing in the past either.
3) The change introduces and increases inconsistency among Python ports
without an upside, without precluding downsides.
4) It feels similar to the PORTVERSION/DISTVERSION changes being
introduced. Just because you can, doesn't mean you should.

The bottom and most important line however, is that preventing Python
port flavors from being produced precludes the user from choosing what
version of the package they may want.

lastly, the only reason the noflavors knob exists is because its not
terribly pleasant as a developer to have features that cant be disabled,
and because our framework can't imagine all the possible scenarios where
a feature may cause issues.

This isn't one of those scenarios.

Could you please revert that specific change in both
security/py-obfsproxy-tor and security/nyx?
