You can safely remove python2 support from vim. The python2 support is
only needed for vim plugins using python2, python2 can be perfectly
linted by vim without python2-plugin support. *Most* plugins got forced
to support both python2 and 3 when ubuntu default vim came without
python2. So it should be fine and you can still install python2 from AUR
or whatever to do the proper linting.
