That's an anomaly.  Those files won't work with currently packaged Python.

Perhaps libxslt's build builds the base path for modules on its own
instead of asking Python about it.  For this to work, you need to move
them to the currently used location.

We'll be moving to version-specific directory at some point, but we
aren't there yet.

Can you revert the change?

We could also add a check in checkpkg to prevent this from happening
in the future in the case that any other packages try to put their
files there.
