Bug Description

Python3 binary packages incorrectly build with python3-argparse.

[test case]
Build a python module that requires argparse (python-keystoneclient in wily for example)

[regression potential]
minimal - in later releases

[original bug report]
pydist overrides needs:

argparse python3 (>= 3.2)

as found in later dh-python versions; without this argparse gets automatically generated as python3-argparse.
