I'd like to see any of those libs separated into 'python-' and
'python3-' as it doesn't always makes sense having both installed.
Some python2 projects have no support for python3 and vice versa and may
never be.
It's also annoying to rebuild all python packages in case it's the
first time you want to install a python3 package and it depends on many
other packages.

I actually work on a SlackBuild that depends on some python SlackBuilds
which don't support python3 yet. A lot of communication to the
maintainers is needed.
