I completely agree that it will not be possible to completely move away from
python 2 immediately, but I think that what can be built with python 3 should
be, and drop any python 2 packages that are no longer needed.

I don't think that it is such a good idea to merge python2/3 packages if
python2 is not going to be maintained, and the python2 packages are no longer

I guess that I'm just trying to look to the future and not make/have a huge
clusterfuck to deal with later.
