Hmmmm... We can read the following in the porter's handbook :
"Ports that install files under PYTHON_SITELIBDIR should use the pyXY-
package name prefix, so their package name embeds the version of Python
they are installed into." 
For consistency, I've just named the port directory the same way. But
you're right, this may be overkill (I originally named it
python-dvdvideo before I changed my mind). Do you think it should be
changed to, e.g. sysutils/dvdvideo (but, of course, keeping the pyXY-
prefix for package name) ? Others, any comment on that ?
