[Fedora-packaging] Packaging python-snappy: choosing name

I am packaging python-snappy:
- pypi: https://pypi.python.org/pypi/python-snappy/0.5
- review: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1244514).

I choose to simply name the package python-snappy but as Christopher
Meng pointed out it could conflict with the pypi package simply named
snappy (https://pypi.python.org/pypi/snappy) which is not packaged and
has no link with the snappy package included in fedora.

I proposed to rename it python-python-snappy which match the name of the
package on pypi and on github. Michael Schwendt proposed
python-snappy-bindings as it provides python binding for the snappy
package (Fast compression and decompression library, packaged). I have
no strong opinion on this, hence I am asking here.

Has anyone some thoughts on that?
