Is this relevant to the discussion at hand? We are talking about 
the binary /usr/bin/python3 which will be surely be provided 
even by Python 4, won't it?

Reading after a certain age diverts the mind too much from its
creative pursuits. Any man who reads too much and uses his own
brain too little falls into lazy habits of thinking, just as the
man who spends too much time in the theater is tempted to be
content with living vicariously instead of living his own life.
