The thing is that some projects I've worked on, like pegen, include a Makefile 
which uses `pythonX.Y` to choose the version and I have to change it to 
`python` quite frequently. 

I can't really figure out any way this could harm anyone, other than what you 
said (running `pythonX.Y` with the wrong values for X and Y), but even in that 
case you get something like `command not fonund` and that's an easy enough typo 
to find.
