Missing libraries when switching to Python 3


I recently switched over my Splunk 8 server to Python 3.

Definitely not a nice experience as not just Python itself changed but also some libraries got dropped, most notable OpenSSL.

I can understand upgrades like switching from urllib2 to urllib3, but dropping OpenSSL completely? That is rather weird.

So I wonder what other silly surprises are lurking and what they are thinking dropping pretty essential libraries.

For the time being I switched back. But on the long run, that is not a viable strategy.
