Hi thanks for this quick [as always! :-)] reply!

So then it seems to me that the packaging should be changed. Currently
the sip4 source package (http://packages.debian.org/source/sid/sip4)
produces these binary packages:

python-sip: runtime library
python-sip-dbg: runtime library (debug extension)
python-sip-dev: development files
python-sip-doc: documentation
python3-sip: runtime library
python3-sip-dbg: runtime library (debug extension)
python3-sip-dev: development files

It would seem that the common code generator should be moved to
python-sip-dev-common and python-sip-dev and python3-sip-dev should
both depend on it. python-sip-doc should also be moved to

Does that sound about right? If OK, I can file a Debian bug for this.
