My concern with making python a requirement to build glibc is that it will
pull in more packages not required to build glibc. If there is a "minimal"
subset of python that does not bring indirect dependencies to glibc build,
and at the same time is sufficient to build glibc, then adding this subset
of python as a requirement to build glibc shouldn't be a problem.
I don't know yet whether SUSE or Debian take on the minimal subset pulls
in extra dependencies, I'll check this when time permits.
