[ATTN boost maintainer] libboost-devel should not bring in python

Hi, libboost-devel has a requirement on libboost-python, which, in turn, 
depends on python. That means if I want to install boost to use in my 
c++ program I'm getting Python as well. It's my hope that that 
requirement could be reveresed, i.e., libboost-python depends on 
libboost-devel, so I don't need to install python just to use boost for c++
