In Fedora, I add the Python 3 like you do, and then additionally add
e.g. python=2.7 to the b2 command line. This then builds a
libboost_python.so vs. Python 2 and libboost_python3 vs. Python 3.
My theory is that when Python 2 to Python 3 transition is eventually
done, you still want to build libbost_python (sans 3), because lots of
apps will still use -lboost_python. But by that time it will be
desirable to have libboost_python built vs. Python 3.
