This is a heads-up to Amar.

As part of the effort to rewrite ntpq in Python, I have renamed the old
pylib/ directory to wafhelpers/ and created a new pylib/ that contains
an installable Python module.  (The rename is to maintain parallelism
with perllib).

On install, I need the build recipe to copy this module directory to
rootspace where Python programs can import it under the name 'ntp'.  I
looked in the waf book to try to do this myself but have not found a

Eventually this will replace perllib as we translate all the old
Perl scripts to Python.
