Python 2 is coming to end-of-life, and all the platforms we care about have Python 3 available now, or will soon. Our scripts are occasionally tested with Python 3, and it probably isn't difficult to fix any problems that have cropped up since the last try.

Therefore, at some future date, we should change all the script shebang lines to refer to "python3".

There is now a working branch for this.

There's a fair chance it'll actually be a requirement on some near-future OS we want to support — Debian 10, macOS 10.15, etc. — so it's time to finish it now.
