3.7 is not so old.

To me, [PEP394]( makes it sound like "python3" should be available

We expect Unix-like software distributions (including systems like macOS and 
Cygwin) to install the python2 command into the default path whenever a version 
of the Python 2 interpreter is installed, and the same for python3 and the 
Python 3 interpreter.

But OTOH it also says:

This PEP deliberately excludes any proposals relating to Microsoft Windows,

Windows... *throws up hands*... *sigh*. I will explore a bit but maybe the default on Windows needs to still be `python` not `python3`?
