I think this just proves that some modules are installed more often than
others. The same is probably true for non-Python packages, but we
generally do not remove packages because too few people use them.

If the renaming from py-* to py2-* is absolutely necessary, surely that
can easily be done using find, xargs, sed etc. regardless of the number of
existing packages.
