Martin beat me since I was about to make the same comment.

Adding a layer with contents that in the best case duplicates what is 
already in another layer (and in the worst case is broken) only creates 
confusion.

Replacing meta-python with meta-python2 sounds like a weird usecase,
and LAYERDEPENDS from layers like meta-multimedia or meta-networking
usually do not even make it an option to not include meta-python.

In practice the most common case where meta-python2 would be included in 
a zeus or earlier distribution would be when someone includes both the 
meta-python and meta-python2 layers.
