Quite radical! : )
Somewhat understandable but it's pretty hard to decide whether both conditions
are really met. Especially the condition "is not a dependency of a py2-only
package" is likely a moving target.

Ciao, Michael.

I think the hardest part is how we could handle it. Does It require we stop providing python3-x and just provide python-x under python3 ? Or a provide/obsolete from each py3 packages ? I don't know.
