How much stuff do you think is going to land in tempest that is going to 
be useful validation between the time you could use a tagged version of 
tempest before py27 support is dropped and when you can roll to centos8? 
I can't imagine it's much and you're still going to get all of the 
interop style smoke tests we already have.

Also, you can't run tempest from a py3 virtual environment or container?
