You can't assume they will work, they need to be verified as 3.9 
compatible. Plenty of modules break with each new python major version. 
If upstream explicitly lists 3.9 as supported in the metadata, that's 
probably good enough. Otherwise each module needs to be tested.

Once that's done, there's no problem adding lots of them in a single commit.
