 Here's a patch for review.

 I have removed detection for Python 3 since it was commented out already.
 It can be added again by adding it the binaries variable once #16904 is

 Additionally i found [https://www.python.org/dev/peps/pep-0394/ PEP-0394]
 which has some recommendations on how to maintain cross-platform support
 now that Arch Linux links `python` to `python3`. I believe that in our
 case that means we should change the detection order to `python2 python3
 python` once #16904 is fixed.
