Greetings,

I use blfs  and 
I have often installed python3  (needed for example for blender ) in say 
/opt/python.  I noticed lately blfs has python3 in /usr.
(   http://www.linuxfromscratch.org/blfs/view/svn/general/python3.html      )


I would like to know


---A)  if this poses any problems to be ensamble with phython2.7  (  
http://www.linuxfromscratch.org/blfs/view/svn/general/python2.html  - i.e. 
also in /usr) ?

and 


--B)   if  /etc/profile has an entry such as the foll:-



export PYTHONDOCS=/usr/share/doc/python-2.7.6:/usr/share/doc/python-3.3.3/html

if the two versions  of python are installed in /usr  ?


thanks in advance

sincerely
luxInteg
