Python2 modules

somebody reports that the installation of texlive pulls in some python2 
packages. The mailinglist is the dev-list of openSUSE factory. 

A maintainer of Python packages at openSUSE answers:

| Yes, and I call on TeXLive maintainers to do something about it,
| because there is a big chance that Pretty Soon™ their packages
| will crash hard, when we remove Python 2 from Factory.

Factory is kind of misleading, it's the rolling release called Tumbleweed, so 
maybe many people will be affected, including me. Maybe you can do something 
about it. 

Have a nice weekend!
