When I try to install python-3.0rcN I get the following warning:
* Note: not installed as 'python'.
* Use 'make fullinstall' to install as 'python'.
* However, 'make fullinstall' is discouraged,
* as it will clobber your Python 2.x installation.
Not clobbering my python-2.* install is all well and good. python-3.0 is installed as expected.
It would be nice to have a generic way to call python-3 though.
Suggestion: Use python3 as the generic install target for python-3.*
Then all subsequent python-3.* installs would get sent there (in addition to python-3.m.n)
If no python2 exists you could either go ahead and use that for python3.
Or you could leave the python just for 2.
