#34356 new defect

Consider bundling Python binary on GNU/Linux

Namecoin (specifically Electrum-NMC) currently requires Python 3.6+, which is not yet universally available. To avoid incompatibility issues on older GNU/Linux distros, it may be worth considering bundling a Python 3.6+ binary with Tor Browser when building with Namecoin is enabled.

(This would have also avoided #33749.)

#34399 is another example of a bug whose exposure to end users would have been avoided by bundling a known-good Python binary.
