The 2.x series of Python is due for deprecation and will not be maintained by upstream past 2020. As part of this, there is an on-going discussion in Python community to recommend soft-linking python to python3 on newer distributions.

If/when Debian starts following this recommendation, the specified script will be broken. However, please do not update this script for the time being.
