Cool, I did not find this parameter yet.

Is this undocumented? http://orgmode.org/org.html does not contain
the string ":python:" and
also does not mention this parameter.

It is documented at http://orgmode.org/worg/org-contrib/babel/languages/ob-doc-python.html

You are right that it would be better if the language-specific babel documentation were better integrated in the general org info file.  But I suppose nobody has been sufficiently motivated to do it yet

Most interesting to me, thank you.

With the parameter above as a workaround, I can accomplish the
things I want to do for now. However, I still do think that Python2
and Python3 as different languages demand different block

#+BEGIN_SRC python -> defaults to the default python interpreter
#+BEGIN_SRC python2 -> uses Python2
#+BEGIN_SRC python3 -> uses Python3

Don't you think?

To be honest, I disagree that we need different block identifiers.  Python is hardly the only language to have gone through multiple major versions, and I don’t think a proliferation of org-babel languages is the answer.  What about C11 vs C99, etc?  I guess a good rule of thumb would be: do the two versions use the same major mode in emacs?

Why is the :python parameter insufficient for your needs?  You can also use it for different virtual environments
