Message:

python3: Fix the installation instructions by bumping the major version of Python3 to 3.8
python3: Add required dependency on lsb-tools (which doesn't work, but I've poked DJ since he's technically upstream)
python3: Update the command explanation for --enable-optimization to use the correct location now that it's python3.8
python3: Add commented short description for 2to3 for when python2 is eventually phased out
python3: Add new program 'easy_install' and add description.
