It looks like a reasonable approach to me.  The only thing I'd point
out is that in a mixed package (a library that provided python
bindings), it _may_ not be appropriate to set category to python...?
It's like a perfect fit for 95% of the cases though.

I'm glad you tackled this!  I hadn't had a chance to get back to it
