Is https://github.com/fgallina/python.el your working code?
I'll try and take a look.  I've bumped into such problems in the past, so
I combine a few useful assets: experience in those problem, intimate
knowledge of Emacs maintainer's expectations (e.g. his willingness to
accept intermediate states that aren't perfect), plus a lot of influence
over that same Emacs maintainer.
