[scl.org] Question about generating RPMs that depend on SCLs (like python27)

I'm creating an RPM (and spec file) that needs Python 2.7 (the python27 
scl).  When I generate it for RHEL6/CentOS6, I the RPM I create has some 
automatically generated dependencies which python27 does not seem to 

Error: Package: assimilation-cma-0.1.4-0.30.x86_64 
            Requires: python(abi) = 2.7
            Installed: python-2.6.6-52.el6.x86_64 (@Updates/$releasever)
                python(abi) = 2.6
            Available: python-2.6.6-51.el6.x86_64 (base)
                python(abi) = 2.6

The spec file knows if it needs python27 or not.

What do I do in my spec file to make this problem go away?
