Description of problem:
Parted currently owns /usr/lib/python2.3/site-packages, which is also
owned by python. A user may choose to remove parted from his/her
system, and rpm would then try (unnecessarily) to remove said directory.
Granted, should the user uninstall all Python packages from the
system, if parted is then removed the directory would be left behind,
but this seems even more unlikely than the first scenario.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. rpm -ql parted
Actual Results: /usr/lib/python2.3/site-packages listed as owned by
Expected Results: It should not be
No, other packages will have an ownership on the directory as well and
thus keep it from getting removed. But parted needs to own it so that
if it's installed when python isn't, the directory will get removed
when you remove the parted package.
