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
