in my oppinion it is worth it, there are people around who dont want any
python3 stuff on their pc until they can move everything
now your weasyprint combined package pulls a lot of stuff, it is simple
in a way that it will always work but you have a *lot* of overhead there

so personally i would consider the following:

- have python-weasyprint with renamed binary python-weasyprint
- have python2-weasyprint with renamed binary python2-weasyprint
- have weasyprint with only a binary weasyprint which can start any of
  the previous


- have python-weasyprint only with libs, no binary
- have python2-weasyprint only with libs, no binary
- have weasyprint which can 'decide' which of the above is installed
  and run it with /usr/bin/python or /usr/bin/python2

  attached a possibility to switch to the installed version
