The Python package on other distributions comes with a Tools directory in /usr/lib/python2.4 with some very useful scripts in it (including one I need for localization). It looks like the necessary addition to the PKGBUOLD would be:
make DESTDIR=$startdir/pkg scriptsinstall
but I haven't got this to run yet. I will post a diff of the PKGBUILD if I find a solution.
This task depends upon

Reason for closing:  Implemented
Additional comments about closing:  Implemented the same way as Fedora does. No need to ship all Tools.
