Sorry for commenting on a patch that has already been merged, but this
does not actually build renpy with Python 3, it builds the python parts
of renpy.  And although those "build" fine as a package, since they
lack tests, there is no guarantee that they work – as a matter of fact,
the actual renpy package, which failed to build against python 3 back
when I last updated the package still fails to build if I adjust the
package definition.

According to upstream, only renpy 8.0 will run on python 3, whereas
renpy 7.5 (both still prereleases) will continue to use python 2.7.

I suggest "temporarily" reverting the following commits
425783b5 "gnu: Remove python2-cython."
ffec658a "gnu: Remove python2-future."
1a6eb0d6 "gnu: Remove python2-pygame-sdl2."
9f1bd63f "gnu: renpy: Build with Python 3."
or alternatively dropping the renpy package altogether.  I have already
reverted them on my local tree, so I could push whenever – the question
is whether to do it in four separate commits or in a big one along with
an explanation.
