I think it makes sense to make the switch before we retire, because
then people's expectations are changed ahead of time and they can
adapt to The Future(TM).
Actually I think it makes more sense that F31 provides no /usr/bin/python.
Then a lot of things which depend on it can be found and fixed since they
have not adapted to the Future any other way.
