While I agree with that, it doesn't change the fact that having python2
lint and syntax checking tools will *still* be helpful in the foreseeable

There are lots of reasons, educational ones, proprietary legacy code ones,

Let's not throw the baby out with the water. Just saying, if there's an opportunity
to keep linters and syntax checkers/highlighters that don't necessarily require python2,
it's not doing any *real* harm, provided they still are maintained projects.

Will we eventually remove those as well? Sure. But the ability to read python2 code properly
is independent of the ability to *run* python2 code. They are separate things.
