The python3.12 eucatastrophe

Python3.12 is creating problems for Fedora 39 users. 3.12 moved to the Meson build system with flang (not sure if all platforms switched from gfortran): scipy with flang and see the definition of eucatastrophe.

Quite an interesting read - actually about the eucatastrophe, the unlikely turn for the good, as many pieces fell into place at the right time because many people worked hard on preparing for a python without distutils, a better build system for scipy, a better Fortran base for all platforms etc.
As for Fedora, our python maintainers have done great work in advance also!
