This is difficult because of dependencies between the three and the way
the configure scripts are tied together :(.

Agreed, this is important.

We are using the latest version that does NOT use CMake. TBH, the
update is probably not worth it.

This is important, I was unaware of it. Sadly, I don't think I will
have time for it before the release.

While here ... In Kay's list there is BZ 123975, an update to Python 3.
As stated in the BZ issue, this is not convenient at this time: we
have tried hard to keep compatibility with and updating
further would put that at risk.

Also the new Python versions upgraded the build scripts for Windows,
which may require more work for our build system.

Somewhere in the distant future... we should also update ICU.
