I've taken a look, but haven't done any testing.
EPEL6 patch - no. Even if it works, I'd say no. We're at the last 7
months before EOL and I don't want the EPEL6 stuff to have changes
like this. I could be outvoted by this, but I believe most of the
other EPEL packagers would feel this way.
EPEL7 patch - This would require some testing. When we tried to turn
on the python automatic-dependency checking, there were things that
broke on EPEL7 so they never got implemented. What, or how they
broke, I don't currently know. I just know that they did, and there
wasn't a big enough demand to debug. As in zero demand. Nobody asked
for it in EPEL7, only EPEL8. So I'm not even sure this would be worth
the testing. Has anyone asked for this?
EPEL8 patch - We've had requests to have EPEL8 be as close to Fedora,
so I'm in favor of this.
I'm pretty sure the %pycached shouldn't be a problem.
What is %python supposed to resolve to? To me it looks like
/usr/bin/python ... which there isn't any in RHEL8. And, I thought
Fedora got rid of it also, in favor of specifically doing python2 or
python3. Or did that change?

I appreciate that you care. My interest in EPEL is purely "best effort" as I
not an EPEL user myself -- I try to not break use cases for people who like to
maintain packages in Fedora and EPEL alike, but sometimes it's really hard to
guess what would work for EPEL best when there is no response.
I would very much like to have some "EPEL <-> Python"
could bring this sort of stuff to.
