I have no experience with python eggs, so Cc'ing the FE list for comments about
the specfile contents and whether a separate template for them is actually needed.

Some questions/notes though, assuming this will be added:

fedora-newrpmspec should still continue to use the generic python template, no?

Using %{name} and %{name}-%{version} in %files sounds a bit optimistic for my
taste, it's not uncommon to slightly deviate from upstream naming in python
package names, and I don't see %{name} or %{version} being passed to any build
or install commands.  --> there's a disconnect

Also, the example %files entries use %{python_sitelib}, are the files always
installed there, or sometimes to %{python_sitearch}?

Due to the two potential issues above, I'd be inclined to just drop the example
%files entries.
