Notes about issue python_shebang_and_dependency_nondeterministically_3_or_3_point_5 in stretch

Identifier: python_shebang_and_dependency_nondeterministically_3_or_3_point_5
Suites: stretch / buster / bullseye / unstable / experimental
Description: The initial line of python programs is #!/usr/bin/python3.5 in build1 and #!/usr/bin/python3 in build2.
This is caused by us building multiple Python versions into separate
directories under {build_dir} but then installing them to the *same*
If any of these builds complete in under 1 second, distutils may decide to
skip copying files to {destdir} as it incorrectly believes them to be
up-to-date. This will result in a package arbitrarily containing scripts
with different version shebangs and, by extension, binary dependencies.
