Comment (by gk):

 One thing I wondered on IRC is how to avoid depending on another external
 party, files.pythonhosted.org, not being down once we build + about
 whether rebuilding `python-future` and `python-pefile` every time is a
 smart idea.

 I guess we could try at least for `python-future` the 0.15.2 package from
 Debian. Which leaves the other one. FWIW: Do we have a policy for when we
 build own projects and when it is okay to build a project during another
 one? I.e.: should be build `python-future` and `python-pefile` in own
 projects to avoid building them over and over again (in case they indeed
 need to get built)?
