​I disagree.
This deps script is widely used​

​by one rpm.org user for years: Mageia Linux.
We use the the "pythonegg(X)(M)" style.
eg: "pythonegg(3)(pyicu)"

I agree with integrating them upstream.
But I disagree with breaking the _one_ rpm.org user.
If the deps style changes from "pythonegg(X)(M)", this means wide breakage
for Mageia Linux.

So please don't!​
