the version used by system tools will be supported for the lifetime of the distribution, irrespective if it is used by system tools or by user apps, but if user wants to make `python3` point to newer version, they can, without fear of breaking anything in the system

and things may break because of deliberate incompatible changes _in python_ like the recent promotion of `async` to a keyword
