Please provide the dbus_python.egg-info directory (from source as is) in the python[2]-dbus packages' site-packages directory to have the package recognized by the python package tools (e.g. pip). With the *egg* directory not being in place pip will reinstall dbus-python from PyPI on package installations that depend on it.

Additional info:
* package version 1.2.8

Steps to reproduce:
`pip list | grep dbus-python` fails with python-pip and python-dbus installed

sources come with a that executes configure; make; make install using magical paths to generate the installation plus setuptools metadata; it re-runs configure etc. every time you execute python install...

I guess it could replace all but the -common part, but this really is quite annoying.
