As Johannes Lothberg pointed out, not the Arch way. If it happens, is 
the exception that confirms the rule.

I have not examined the source code, but considering that Python is so 
flexible about namespaces, you could even manage to make it coexist with 
the repo package by renaming the executable script, perhaps renaming the 
main library entry point and do some sed magic in a couple of files in 
the package() section of your PKGBUILD.
