It is my impression that Debian generally has more libraries built only 
for Python 2 than both 2+3 and only 3.  This might very well change for 
Jessie+1 - I seem to recall the Python/Python3 maintainer explicitly 
recommending that, but time will if shift will be that swift.

Unless you are in need of concrete libraries packaged only for Python3, 
I recommend to use a) stick with Python2 for now, but also to b) package 
as much libraries for both Python2 and Python3 as possible, to help ease 
the shift.
