Hmm, I was hoping that I can drop support for Python 2 in 2020 ;) (it's
officially EOL since Jan 1, 2020)

The Ubuntu 18.04 release notes mention that "Python 2 is no longer
installed by default. Python 3 has been updated to 3.6. This is the last
LTS release to include Python 2 in main."
( - so imho it should
be fine to drop Python 2 support.

I tested it with a Ubuntu VM, and by default the Python bindings aren't

But you can compile perf and select Python 3:

$ make -j2 PYTHON=python3

in the perf source directory (libpython3-dev must be installed).
