Wrong. Correct dependencies only require the set of packages they need, they dont pull in packages
nor versions, which are not used or needed.
Since you claim portage behaviour being right and you dont want to change "dev-lang/python"
dependency, you want to force all users to install python-3*, also it is not needed nor used nor is
there any benefit from it being installed.
