Hmm, I always thought sys should contain everything that's required for
building itself and everything that's
required for a minimum runtime system.
dev-lang/python includes tcl-tk support, sys-devel/python not otherwise we
must must xfree/tcl-tk to sys
which is a bad idea.
So dev-langy/python can not go away.
But in sys we only need spython with a basic set of libs. Libs must be
placed in /lib because spython is used
by env-update which is called during boot and so it must work without /usr
