Thanks, however it turns out that this will unfortunately not work for
me: from astropys POV, pytest seems to be broken in versions 3.7 - 3.10;
I also observed diverse failures on other (astropy dependent) packages
with 3.10. Which basically means that I need to switch off the tests,
unless pytests upstream provides a bugfixed 3.X version.
However, it seems that I need to start with the removal of the Python 2
astropy ecosystem, which may be in any case not the worst decision.
Personally, I like to put pressure to move towards Python 3.
