Well. I have those packages (built them just today, after a while), and
everything seems good... except for a "little" problem. I didn't realize
that Jim's installation process places soft links from $USUALLIBPLACE to
$PYTHONPATH/site-packages for libpythonize.so* (just noticed), and I
place them "manually" at site-packages (with no "ln -s"), so I need to
rebuild the package.

It will be there (at my repo) late today. Into Debian unstable probably
on one-two weeks (maybe I'll wait a bit more until Jim releases the
final v3.8).
