Because the maintainers of its dependencies won't maintain them just for a
decade old dead software. Please, stop spreading this FUD about FESCo
outright denying requests for Python 2 exceptions. In a half year old
thread about a package that was retired 4 months ago because it wasn't
installable - with coordination from the maintainer.
So long as Python2 remains installable, I don't see why you feel the need to
rip it out of the distro.
