I know nothing about this.  What are the relative advantages and
disadvantages of asciidoctor vs asciidoc ?  Do they process the same
documents in exactly the same way ?

My 2p, as a very limited author of some asciidoc files: the outputs are
different, because (at least) asciidoctor applies a different
stylesheet. I much prefer asciidoctor's output and use it in preference.

I'd suggest that tangible reasons for using asciidoc (py2 or py3) over
asciidoctor should be identified, to decide whether to persist with
packaging it.
