The sword of Damocles is hanging on its head. Unless a consortium is
erected to support Python2, no vendor will be able to use it in the
medium term.

Given the recent events, maybe that's exactly what's going to happen. A
business consortium will take it on themselves to support and enhance
Python2 ad infinitum. I wouldn't be surprised.

(Although it might make me regret my knee-jerk porting effort.)
