Pierre wasn’t clear — but if indeed we must upgrade twisted on this old slave, it is really substantially harder to use python3?   If we do have to upgrade twisted, the comparison should be on how hard it is to do that vs doing that *and* upgrade python.

On a platform where you have to live within the bounds of packages published by the (old) distro, it seems likely that both paths are likely going to be problematic.  And outside that situation, it’s pretty easy to upgrade either twisted or python or both.

In which contexts are we worried about the difficulty of getting python3?
