I do %filter_requires_in because of:
rpm -i x86_64/python-visual-5.40-1.fc13.x86_64.rpm 
error: Failed dependencies:
	cvisualmodule.so.3()(64bit) is needed by

With %filter_provides_in I strip the cvisualmodule.so out, but this is
still required, when leaving requires_in out. So I'm forced to do
either both, or nothing...

What excactly should %filter_requires_in do? I expect it to filter the
*.so files, which are coming from %{python_sitearch}/.*\.so*, but not
the requires that those *.so files have to other system libs.

Currently %filter_requires_in leaves out the cvisualmodule.so AND the
system libs, but I need the system libs as requires...
