missing kdev-python3 package

Bug Description

This ppa contains a series packages for Kubuntu including kdev-python. However, according to the author (Sven Brauch), kdev-python has a compile-time switch to choose between supporting python2 or python3. Unfortunately, there is no package of kdev-python that includes the build for python3 and hence there is no debugger support etc. for python 3 available. It would be great if such a package could be added. Suggested name: kdev-python3. It is important that kdev-python and kdev-python3 are mutually exclusive, hence each needs a conflict w/ the other as it is currently not possible to have both at the same time.

Just saw that debian provides (only) the Python 3 version of the package: https://packages.debian.org/jessie/kdevelop-python

Please provide a package of kdev-python for python3. I've tried building the packages myself, the latest attempt in a perfect record of failure. ( Fight Club outtake: 'What do want to do before you die?' Build a linux package!')
Python 3 began in 2008. Soon it will be able to vote. Some packages only use Python3: Libre Office. So not supporting it just adds a whole new wrinkle to the Getting Stuff Done department.
