[Rpm-maint] [rpm-software-management/rpm] Handle Python extras trough reverse requirements encoded in provides (#1061)

I think the subpackages approach is simpler, and has a lower cognitive burden on the user than the "reverse provides requires rich dependencies" (that's a mouthful ...). I am also reluctant to introduce another source of "if" rich dependencies, which still aren't really correctly handled by some tools, not even some dnf commands (e.g. repoclosure)

Can we extend pyp2rpm to generate these "extras" subpackages automatically in the .spec files? rust2rpm does it this way for optional crate features.
