First, it feels rude to me to file for a package deletion without even
contacting me before.

I think it does make sense to produce both of them in a single PKGBUILD
as they both use the same source and are built the same way. This is
also the way the standard package is built in the official repository.

You don't need to install both the python2 and python3 packages. Just
install the version you need. Maybe it's your AUR helper that want to
install both at the same time?

I'm currently rebasing this package against the one in the official repo
thus this will no longer be a problem anymore and you will be able to
install both at the same time.
