Consider python-is-python2 and python-is-python3:
$ apt-cache search python-is-python
python-is-python3 - symlinks /usr/bin/python to python3
python-is-python2 - symlinks /usr/bin/python to the DEPRECATED python2
> Now all that has broken, and I have to be explicit because as we all know from Zen #2, "Explicit is better than implicit." But is it really though in this case? Was this a necessary breaking change? I'm pretty sure I disagree with it for now... change my mind? Curious what others think. Here's a related thread.
