The title is misleading

- python 3.5 is installed by default instead of 2.7
- python 2 is installed as soon as you install a soft where it's a 
dependency (probably pretty soon)
- in the command line python=python2, invoking python 3.5 is still done 
with the command python3

Not much has changed.
