Yes, and this is due to the fact that ‘python2-cryptography’ is not just
an automatically-translated package:

  (define-public python2-cryptography
    (let ((crypto (package-with-python2 python-cryptography)))
      (package (inherit crypto)
         `(("python2-ipaddress" ,python2-ipaddress)
           ,@(package-propagated-inputs crypto))))))

If it were simply equal to (package-with-python2 python-cryptography),
there would be no need for the manual tweak in ‘python-pyopenssl’.

Efraim, could you apply the same strategy as for ‘python2-pyopenssl’ in

I think we would need a way to register “translation” results.
Currently ‘package-with-python2’ internally uses a hash table to memoize
conversion results.  We could imagine adding something like:

  (register-python2-variant PY3VARIANT PY2VARIANT)

to explicitly add a pair to that hash table.

The downside of this approach is that this would break referential
