Ok, I understand now. I thought I had to edit python2-cryptography to fix
python2-oauthlib, now I realize everytime I use python2-cryptography I need
to make sure it pulls the right one.

We already have the python- and python2- variants as the same packages, just
with the occasional additional input to make it build. Mapping the two
together might speed up package-with-python2.

I'm going to keep on looking at guix/build-systems/python.scm to see if I can
come up with something to not need to specifically declare python2-foo every
time python-foo ends up being used.
