I now have a proof of concept for a pip-based python-build-system, see
1st patch. The changeset is quite small, but it does not handle testing
at all right now.

Note that alot of setuptools-based packages lack a dependency on
python-wheel (2nd patch; pardon the whitespace errors), which is
required when using pyproject.toml (and also declared there, but our
Python importer cannot read that file yet). But – as expected – that’s
really the only issue I’ve encountered while rebuilding alot of Python
packages so far.
