Hmm.  More maintenance complexification.  After thinking about it, I
don't want to explore using py-borgbackup enough to put up with its
installation complications.

I know nothing about python.  Is this multiple SET repo technique
going to be the migration path to 3.x in the future?  If so, what does
it mean to have a whole ecosystem of python 2.7 ports installed, and
then overlay a SET of default python 3.5+ ports?  That is going to
have to work, right?
