Status update on this:

- with some adjustments to the relevant spec files, I came up with an
rpm-list-builder recipe that can bootstrap the whole rh-python35 SCL
stack in a clean mock chroot in about an hour (depending on your
system specs)
- the README at https://github.com/ncoghlan/pyscl-devel/ covers how to
run such a build yourself if you're so inclined

As noted at https://github.com/ncoghlan/pyscl-devel/issues/1, the next
steps will be to switch the built SCL name over to "sclo-python", and
then get it building in COPR using actual bootstrap component releases
rather than private RPM builds with tweaked release tags.

I still have a PyCon Australia talk to finish, though, so I'm planning
to take a break from working on this until after that's done. I'm
definitely open to PRs if anyone wanted to take a look at what's
involved in the rename in the meantime :)
