Simply merging over like it was with sys-devel/python and dev-lang/python ?

I allways thought sys contains everything required to build itself and everythin
a minimum runtime system.
perl is needed to build some of the sys packages, thats why it is there.
python is not required for building and not for runtime, so it is not there.
If you insist in having python in sys.tbz2 I can include a version compiled without
in the sys.tbz2 but dev-lang is the place. :-)
