I don't think you are missing anything. As long as the *version* of a 
Python module is the same for Python 2 and Python 3, then it makes sense 
to have them in a single package or SlackBuild. As I mentioned in my 
other email, there are rare cases where this isn't possible: IPython 
won't go above 5.x for Python 2 but is on 7.x for Python 3.

Otherwise, keeping them together is usually the way to go.
