This rather begs the question of whether there are any modules which
only work *with python 2*, though...

The ansible guys might know... or might not really tbh which is why the current documentation upstream still declares it a technology preview. 

The test coverage is growing there but not massively comprehensive... and tbh I expect the greater problem will be random galaxy stuff or local plugins and modules people have written. 

It's going to be a very disruptive change in F29 as it is... to the extent I might start directing people to use the upstream ansible repos directly if they don't change there. 

I'm honestly looking to the py2 drop in F30 as a necessary evil but one I'm looking at with intense trepidation.
