Instead of noindex maybe the 3.x documentation can be marked as the canonical 

This should still allow the old docs to be crawled but emphasize the latest 
docs on the website:

Presumably the "better suited" means that if you search for "python2 timeit" 
you'd still find the py2 docs.

Terry Reedy, could you link the earlier issue so this information can be posted 
there, or are you referring to the issue Karthik linked?
