Python3 for the libraries is blocked on some issues around the ABI
files (in turn the vscripts and so the version mangling of the
symbols).  This is still unresolved, and caught Red Hat up too recently
who tried and failed to patch it over a few months.  Hopefully they
work out something they are happy with and then Debian can follow.
