Python feature branch

Below is the cover letter I sent for a series of patches to fix 
python-yubikey-manager which along the way updates/fixes more. (Apologies for 
the double send to Python team but I wanted the bug number first for this 
message and to include them in any larger discussion.) The series is here: 

The deepest change is a package that affects pyproject-build-system. I thought 
I would send this here as well for wider visibility on this series as well as 
to garner any ready to go Python changes that can't be pushed to master 

So, please feel free to help gather any other patches that should go on a 
Python updates feature branch. I would like to keep this for changes that are 
less controversial/quicker changes in order to fix the breakages introduced 
from core-updates, namely poetry and python-yubikey-manager (an important leaf 
for some). However, since this series will rebuild all of 
pyproject-build-system using packages, there is the potential for lots of 
breakage. In that case, we can separate out the newer python-pypa-build package 
just for where it is needed an not update the build-system now.

Thanks everyone!

Cover for #63139:

Hi Guix and Python team,

Here is a patch series where the original goal was to fix 
python-yubikey-manager on core-updates and then ballooned to a bit more. This 
should be done in a feature branch for Python.

Mostly this was to fix/update the needed dependencies, though it may be 
possible to do this in a more minimal way just for that package fix. Anyway, I 
tried to generate this series in a way that each patch continues to fix things, 
but due to the complicated dependencies this may not be perfect.

A few notes:

1. Most of the series is pretty trivial, quick fixes/updates, some new packages.

2. What isn't is a few cases of failing tests which weren't immediately obvious 
to me and likely were some network access and/or build environment details. 
Some could be worked around maybe if someone wants to try (e.g. in 
python-virtualenv). I did enable more tests along the way though (like for 
poetry), so on the whole I think this is a step forward.

3. The dependents tend to be maybe 10s, a few in the hundreds, and then about 
3k for python-filelock. Until we get to pyproject-build-system updates:

4. I believe it was poetry that needed a newer python-pypa-build module, which 
then touches all pyproject-build-system (about 6k packages). This isn't 
strictly necessary as we could have a newer and separate package for leafs to 
use rather than in the build system as well, but I figured might as well do it 
sooner rather than later. At least the packages up to python-yubikey-manager 
built with this along with some random others.

5. On that note, I did not complete this change as I wanted some feedback on 
the bootstraping. I've added python-pyproject-hooks which should deprecate 
pep517, but currently it also needs python-pypa-build. I've made the older 
python-pypa-build a -bootstrap package to build this and the newer version of 
itself as well. So I did not deprecate pep517 yet.

   Also, python-wheel was a propagated-input in pep517 which is not needed in 
pyproject-hooks. However, I saw at least some packages will then need that as 
an input to build; so I kept it for pyproject-hooks to ease testing. It should 
be removed and added as an input as needed (no idea if that is just a few or a 
lot of the tree).

Okay, I think those are my notes. We should see what other things are ready to 
be made into this feature branch for Python. One brought to my attention 
recently is <> though I have not looked at it.
