Hmm, I use locally-bootstrapped ./d2, and I now see that the bootstrap
script itself creates project-config.jam with the following line:

  using python : 2.7 : /usr ;

So, that explain why my adding Python 3 actually _added_ Python 3, not
replaced the system one. Python 2 comes from another file...

My guess is that if you add both pythons to user-config.jam, the effect
would be the same.
