You would not be able to make a symbolic link at /usr/bin/python because /usr/bin is a protected directory.

If you do encounter ports broken by the removal of /usr/bin/python, please do not keep that discovery to yourself and try to work around it just for yourself. Please report the problem to us in the issue tracker or send a pull request on GitHub to fix it.
