Yes, that sounds like an interesting strategy to explore. One potential
obstacle is that most of the Python2-dependent package are out of
maintenance as well. But then, many of them don't need any maintenance.

If we introduce Tauthon, we should probably untie its dependents from
the Python (3) version, i.e. stop deriving them from Python 3 package
definitions. The latter will ever more evolve in an incompatible way.
