I was actually just looking into this more in depth yesterday after
ignoring it last week since I have two programs stuck due to not having
mesonpy.. Luckily, I didn't spend too much time with it :) I've looked over
your changes and tried them successfully with your pandas SlackBuild
update. Feel free to push your python3-pandas update on my behalf.

I'll wait until the public update before I update python3-scipy as that
requires mesonpy as well (but I got it working here with your packages
after a few changes to its pyproject.toml). Seems easier for SBo admins to
not have to pull updates from multiple branches to test if an update

Thanks for your efforts!
