[Fedora-packaging] python listed explicitly as exception and added to buildsys-build groups

So at one point in time, it would appear that something in 
pulled in python, according to 

However now it doesn't seem to happen, and python isn't being installed by 
default in buildroots.  Python is a pretty integral part of our distribution 
and a lot of assumptions are made that python is there, even at build time.  
I would like to propose that we add python to the Exception list so that it 
can't ever disappear again.  We list perl explicitly, even though its pulled 
in via rpm-build (and a couple other things), so why not python?
