One small question/caveat, though, if I may?

Even being a Debian / Mint / Ubuntu fan, there's still an incredible of
stuff that uses "/usr/bin/python," instead of something like "/usr/bin/env
python." It seems "not unreasonable" to continue to support that link, just
to allow people who use Cygwin for development, a little additional sanity
for the time being?
That said, people *should* be transitioning to other tools, such as pyenv
or pipenv, to better manage their environments (or, in the case of later
python 3 versions, the built-in venv mechanism)
