I've been looking, but I haven't yet found a utility like cpan2aur or gem2arch, etc for Python 'eggs' or whatever they're called ;-) I use cpan2aur ( well it's underlying module parent ) rather prolifically maintaining my Perl AUR PKGBUILDs, I eventually would like to utilize gem2arch, nodejs-npm2aur etc to take on even more responsibility to ensure that Arch Linux is the home of language library usability awesomeness. Even though I don't like the Python paradigm, I can not be ignorant to the fact that people use it; even if it makes me sad to know people are using it. That said, is anyone aware of, or have plans to make, a pypi2aur like utility ? I'm just planning long term right now, until I perfect my Perl PKGBUILD build server, I won't bite off anything more, but eventually that will reach a mature status and my interests will soon change focus for the other languages.
It really makes us (the world) sad that in 2014 you're still using perl.. :(.
Now, for real, don't make comments like that ^, we don't want that kind of wars on our lists, ok?.
Back to the point that you asked, I am not really sure but I remember I saw someone that made something like years ago and probably is abbandoned, i will check if I can find something, but python packaging it's more or less mechanical (I'm taking a gamble on the numbers but I think 70%~ of python packages have a similar PKGBUILD structure).
