python: don't include -tests with modules
Although 'test' is listed in the python module list (https://docs.python.org/3/py-modindex.html) it is meant only to be used 'internally' by folks developing python itself. Per the documentation: Note The test package is meant for internal use by Python only. It is documented for the benefit of the core developers of Python. Any use of this package outside of Python’s standard library is discouraged as code mentioned here can change or be removed without notice between releases of Python. Per the above it is best not to include this module to discourage folks who might not head the above warnings. Additionally this module is one of the largest py modules going, by dropping this unneeded module from the 'modules' package we can reduce overall image size, something which is important for many embedded deployments. The generator scripts as well as the manifests have thus been modified accordingly, providing a generic mechanism to exclude modules from the 'all modules' package.
