As I suggested in #357057, I suggest you copy the sed snippet and go on
with the Python transition with a 2.4 build requirement. This will
work even after the transition, and doesn't require more work.

This would only fix problems in experimental, lilypond is currently not
releasable, so imaginating that the Python switch would not happen, we
would end up without lilypond.
It also didn't switch to the new Python policy, and I know that the
number of libraries converted to the new Python policy was a good
indicator of the progress towards switching the default python runtime,
i.e. it's the other way around: first convert a maximum number of
packages to the new policy and then switch the default python runtime.
BTW, did you take note of the problems I mentionned or would you prefer
them reported in a bug report or even multiple bug reports?
