It would certainly make my life a whole lot easier, as singlespec is difficult (pulls in a lot of python 2.x stuff) and makes collaboration with fedora less feasible.
I would like to keep singlespec even AFTER python 2 dies and we switch off python2* macros. I still hope that we eventually make PyPy working and in my illegal-substance-induced dreams (that’s how close to reality it is) I can hope we can make Jython and/or IronPython working (or anything else which eventually comes).
Current set of Python related macros is rather nice set, and I am strong supporter of when it is not broken, let it be.
Concerning Fedora packages. I was Red Hat employee for eleven years, I packaged numerous Fedora/RHEL packages, including plenty of python-related ones. I hope we will never fall so low as to have packages comparable to Fedora. openSUSE packaging is leagues above Fedora ones, and we want to hope to maintain so many python-* packages with so few people as we do, we cannot settle for the unholy mess which is Fedora python-* SPEC files.
What specific problems you have with singlespec packaging (aside from the presence of Python 2 compatible packages, which will evaporate in Januray, hopefully)?
