Windows often makes this a lot simpler, although sometimes the registry enforces single versions. At least without dependency management it's easier to install the same version twice using a simple installer.
While package management makes things simpler, if there was an easier way to install two versions of Python and choose which applications use which version, you could make a gradual transition to Python 3 without breaking core distro features.
Am I missing something here?
