Yes. Our python package follows upstream and only provides binaries called
python3 and python3.4. The python-2.7.10 package also follows upstream
(you can see a pattern here :-)) and provides python, python2 and python2.7.

You will probably want to use python-wrapper, which corresponds to the
python package with an additional symbolic link python->python3
(and some others); it is actually used in a number of package recipes.
