Subject Does Spot depend on python2?

Spot does depend on Python2.  We should figure out what is involved to
migrate, and what software is impacted.

Subject: Does Spot depend on python2?

I am evaluating spot, and I looked at the Spot demo, which is built from a
Dockerfile.  I noticed that the demo is based on Python 2.7.  Being
concerned about software that requires python2, I downloaded the source
code to spot itself, and looked at the python scripts in the 'master'
branch, and most of them do /usr/bin/env python, which means they expect to
run on python2.   However, a quick glance didn't show things that were
python2-only (like print's without parenthesis)

I was concerned that come next year, systems might start shipping without
python2 installed, so I was wondering if anyone has already determined if
spot can run on a system with only python3 installed?
