Another approach could be to move the bindings from the `mesos` git repo to a separate repo
(either the ASF or in the `mesos` GitHub org). This could decouple it from the main Mesos
build infrastructure and create a project for a Python community to coalesce around. I think
there's value in nominating an official Python binding, but maybe we don't have to carry that
in the same git repo and build system.
