The upstream Python position is (I'll paraphrase), "There will not be a Python 2.8. If there is a new feature release of Python 2 it will be because someone forked it - it's Free software, so we can't prevent that".
There are a lot of things we need to worry about in the Debian Python world, but I don't think python2.8 is one of them.
