It seems that you are suggesting that pointless bureaucracy be kept in
place purely because it slows down a process which you don't personally
like. If so, that's awfully passive-aggressive.
If someone does wish too create a separate python2 package via a package
review, will you also attempt to obstruct that review?

I'm somewhat confused; you seem to wish to make it take more time, not

Has anyone at all suggested doing this on a massive scale? I certainly
didn't. I only suggested making it easier to handle the case where a
package maintainer simply doesn't want the python2 subpackage to be
generated from the main package. I get the impression you took my
suggestion and for whatever reason turned it into something else

Perhaps for you. Perhaps not for others. If it was no big deal in all
cases then why have any python2 packages been dropped at all?
