i think that in case of switching there's a need of full ist of 
incompatible with 3 soft and if it is less than list of compatible, then 
maybe switch 3 to main and 2 in contrib for obsoletes.
but for soft req maybe it would be nice to have both and just link 
latest with ~python and leave python.2.7 and have python.3.3 for me it 
is frustrating to see python2, python3 it seems for me like it is 
breaking some policies imho.
and as for branching maybe in case of include python.3 the 2 spec and 
build maybe should be recompiled, so it wasn't installing self as main.
