Let's see what happens sooner, the python3.8 transition or PDAL 2.1 release.

I think it's a CMake issue, it picks up python3.8 despite it not being
the default yet. python3.8 is only partially pulled in via some of the
build dependencies, pdal itself only build depends on python3-dev which
provides 3.7 for now.

I known, and am looking forward to it.
