Comment (by Christian Mauderer):

 Maybe let me summarize a bit:

 - No one really fought for keeping the wrappers. Instead we should start
 documenting how to set up a good environment (either via `virtualenv` or
 installing directly on host systems).

 - For our tools we should select a shebang that is used in all user facing

 - We have at least `waf` which uses just `python` in the shebang. So
 regardless what we chose: Our environment needs a `python` command as long
 as `waf` uses it.

 - There is no consensus about which python version we should use for user
 facing tools. Maybe we should move that discussion to the mailing list
 like suggested multiple times?

 I think the first three points answer the original question of the ticket?
 Did I miss something from the discussion?

 The last point is definitively a controversial one. There are good reasons
 for both directions. But again: Maybe that should be discussed with a
 broader audience?
