Would any other software, other than freecad, ever want to use that python module?
- If so, try to make it a separate port (or subport) that exists in all possible python versions (e.g. py27-pivy, py26-pivy, etc.).
- If not, then it's probably fine to just have freecad install it for whatever version of python freecad is going to be using
