OK.  Right now, as you type this, what package depends on python-3 and 
won't work with python-2?  Anything at all?  If it is nothing, then why 
install it?

Since python-3 is not what the system is using, it's not getting used 
even if it is installed.  So as I mentioned in another reply, portage is 
installing something and it is just sitting there doing nothing.  What 
is the point in that?
