It was indeed a try to remove the dh_python2 warning. It does not change
anything in the produced package, since install dir is overwritten by
CDBS. From my not-so-informed point of view however, since the
--install-layout=deb option was added specifically to help building
debian packages, CDBS should use it when possible, instead of specifying
its own dirs.

The produced package is actually working, even if building it generates
a warning. I do take warnings seriously, since it is a sign of something
not broken but which could have problems. I did not find any definitive
answer about the subject of dist-packages vs site-packages, so I did not
yet, as suggested, file a bug against python/dh_python2. I still do not
know if the warning is superfluous or valid.
