Python (and other apps which may have a library) developers should look in extras-devel before porting it themselves?

Arguably, developers should only have -devel in their SDK sources.list as this is what the auto-builder will compile against.

I see no need to promote developer dependencies separately, as any app relying on them will have to go through -devel anyway.
