Well, gunicorn is a application server for running applications written
in python. So if the application is written in Python 2, one needs to
run the application server using Python 2, too, since it does not spawn
a new interpreter-process [*]. This is why there are two packages.

[*] Even if it would spawn a new interpreter process, we would need a
second package, since for a Python 2 application gunicorn would need to
access the python2 binary or library.
