[New-bugs-announce] [issue10679] "make altinstall" will clobber OS provided scripts

New submission from Nick Coghlan <ncoghlan at gmail.com>:

"make altinstall" installs "2to3", "pydoc3" and "idle3" without version specific names.

This was at least a deliberate decision in the case of 2to3, but there doesn't appear to be any reason not to use a properly qualified version suffix on the pydoc and idle executables.
