no, it doesn't. If all Python2 packages will use /usr/bin/python2 and all
Python3 packages will use /usr/bin/python3, then /usr/bin/python can be
managed by update-alternatives. And because we really want all Python2
packages to use /usr/bin/python2, I think this is a viable option.

But TBH I don't think it's a good idea, because it can be confusing for
