I disagreed removing it in fedora was a good idea, the same holds here.
well, the real problem is Python itself and using it for important
system tools! what happens when Python4 comes up and how many decades
will it take until existing software works with it?
after seeing what happende with KDE5 and GNOME3 - both not learning from
the KDE4 catastrophe years ago i have not much hope than Python learned
from it's history that you can't bring a completly BC incomaptible major
version and the world has to deal with it
upgrade PHP 5.6 to 7.3 is a no-brainer compared to python2-python3
