Re: Python and python3 as separate runtime systems

* Scott Kitterman <debian@kitterman.com>, 2010-05-26, 17:43:
I think users who don't care about Python 3 yet, should be able to have
systems that don't pull any Python 3 elements on by accident. Python 3 is primarily of interest to developers right now and most users won't care to have it.

It is very unusual for code to be able to run unmodified in both Python 2 and Python 3.

I think it makes sense for them to be kept separate at runtime.

This would mean separate python-foo and python3-foo binaries where both are supported from the same source.

It would mean that binaries should not depend on both Python 2 and Python 3 interpreters.

I means that the support tools for Python 3 should run in Python 3
