Thanks for clearing this up.

I'll see if I can get rid of tablib in packages and if it still
continues to work. Though I may work on this a bit later: I've currently
started the huge task of uploading 102 Liberty (and related) packages to
move them from Debian Experimental to Sid, and after that, I'll have a 5
days break, then the Tokyo summit... But after that, removing tablib
from the equation will allow me to bring even more Python 3 support in
packages, which is great.
