What do you mean by "force it"?.

I mean set USES=python3.3+ for such ports.

I agree python3 should be the default choice for all ports that can be
installed with both python 2 and 3 if there is no python on the system.
if python2 is already installed and python3 is not python2 should be
used to reduce possible incompatibilities between programs.


Please see my comments to Vlad's response. This does not involve python "libraries" and standalone ports that depend on such "libraries".
