Any news here? I mean, Python 2 is going away (if not already gone)...

I've reviewed both patches and added them to the Gentoo version of 

That said, compatibility with recent python isn't complete then.

1) With the second patch I hit the command line length limit in t/instmany-
python.sh, which then fails (no wonder if every file gets prepended 
__pycache__/ ...). I've worked around that by increasing the limit in t/
instmany-python.sh from the somewhat arbitrary 2500 to 3200. Neverthlesss, 
maybe a more elegant solution is possible.

2) The fix/patch of bug #38043 (Incorrect Python byte-compiling for Python 
3 and PyPy3), which we also carry, interferes with t/py-compile-basedir.sh; 
the number of generated files (line 47 there) is then (only for recent 
Python 3) 6, not 4.
