Sometimes breaking things can be helpful. If someone is not aware that something still requires Python 2.x, having that script start failing can often be helpful. As long as Debian provides a way to make /usr/bin/python point to 2.x, I think this kind of breakage will be useful since it makes it clear that the user is relying on totally unmaintained software. Arch has been using /usr/bin/python for Python 3.x for a while now. .hc
