Here is some more information. I'm not a Python guy so I don't mess
with it. It is in a default state from Oracle.

$ command -v python3

$ ls /opt/csw/bin/py*
/opt/csw/bin/pydoc           /opt/csw/bin/python-config
/opt/csw/bin/pydoc2          /opt/csw/bin/python2
/opt/csw/bin/pydoc2.6        /opt/csw/bin/python2-config
/opt/csw/bin/python          /opt/csw/bin/python2.6

$ ls /bin/py*
/bin/pydoc                    /bin/python-config
/bin/pydoc-2.6                /bin/python2.6
/bin/pydoc-2.7                /bin/python2.6-config
/bin/pydoc3.4                 /bin/python2.7
/bin/pygobject-codegen-2.0    /bin/python2.7-config
/bin/pygobject27-codegen-2.0  /bin/python3.4
/bin/pygtk-codegen-2.0        /bin/python3.4-config
/bin/pygtk27-codegen-2.0      /bin/python3.4m
/bin/pyrexc                   /bin/python3.4m-config
/bin/pyrexc2.6                /bin/pyvenv
/bin/pyrexc2.7                /bin/pyvenv-3.4

I think the takeaway is, use 'command -v python3' to test for the
presence of Python. As far as I know it is POSIX and should work

I know another option is to try to configure Python. But I am not real
happy with Python breaking basic I/O and I don't want to try to unfuck
all the errors it could cause. I don't have enough experience to fix
all of the errors. I'd rather leave it unconfigured.
