no it was just a "maybe one day the upstream will care about python3". It is difficult enough like this :)

maybe you should ask the upstream about all this on there mailing list. It is good a "entree en matiere".
you should explain that you are working on a Deban package for cctbx and ask them for all descritions.
It is important to work on this description things with the upstream as it is an entry point for the library.
then ask debian-l18n-english for an non specialist poin tof view which gives usually very good descriptions.

yes I remember that there is some mp interfaces. can you add this poin ton the wiki.
So we should not forgot about this.
