The only inherent conflict is that you can only associate the .py
extension with one version for any particular user.

This only matters if you need to be able to run Python files as if they
were executables, e.g. by double-clicking them in Explorer. If you invoke
Python files by explicitly specifying the Python interpreter, there isn't
a problem.
