This ***shouldn't*** be a choice distros have to make. There should be a standard upstream recommended way to install python, and that's also what "make install" should do. That distros are having to make a choice here is a problem in communication from python core developers -- it sucks that we've gotten this far without consensus on a proper transition plan for moving from Python 2.X to Python 3.X.
