I think that we need a productive argumentation here.

I really don't know enough about the 10GB (or 30GB) images (/me
shudders in horror) and their starting time, but as the one who
will most likely have to implement and maintain most of this,
let me add one argument against this.

Do you mean for the packaging? I was hopping to get some magic %macro as the
%artifact (once updated, if this is a viable solution)

If we really want to do such drastic change to all Python
packages, I would really prefer if this discusion was done on
python-devel and/or python-ideas upstream, so that we won't end
up as the only with different configuration of Python and with
our unique bugs. Could somebody who wants to make the case for
this change do so on python-ideas and start a discussion there,

How python-devel can help here? My PoV is this is a collective decision inside
openSUSE. I have a PoC in place, but I still need to make my full point before
reaching any decision on the topic. In that regard, we are upstream.

For example, the patch that is in 3.7 comes from 3.8. I can agree to work in
this feature and make only available only for 3.8, without maintaining the
patched version of Python 3.7.

So far the change is small, and my daily work with it is not impacted. But I
would agree if we make this change easily reversible, in the case that after
some time we agree that this was a bad idea, for implications that we are not
aware of. Or maybe decide in favor of doing it only for certain uses cases.

How python-devel can help on those decisions?
