	short answer is no.

Longer one is that mostly python3-package is useful when there is a different
[python-]package and python3-package.
	Since python3 will be the default on slackware 15, python2 being
deprecated, EOL'ed, dead and buried, obsolete, and forgotten, it seems there is
not much of a reason to call a new package python3-truc.
