It's not broken _yet_ because Python 2 is still more or less available
and of course we can keep using it (ignoring security issues) as long as
we want.  This will hit the native builds first.  There have been some
hits concerning Ghostscript that are currently in check but may come
back.  Also some other issues.

Kurt had started on it but asked for help getting more done.  I don't
know to what degrees others have actually stepped in also, but it's not
like one could not share work by arranging who ports what.
