Isn't  it easier to just linstall Python 2 from an older distro?

A flatpak (no c) is an application that runs in a completely separate sandbox and all the dependencies are in the sandbox with it so it allows systems without Python 2 (and the python 2 dependencies) to be run on a system which has no Python 2.
