Install Python3.7 on stretch? Fifteen minutes work at the most,
and a learning experience into the bargain.

Install stretch; base system only. Change sources.list to buster.
Update and install python3.7. Seven new packages and six upgraded
packages. Not bad at all. Not a snag in sight. Revert the previous
change to sources.list.

How this unknown beta software behaves on such a system would be
interesting to know.

No compilation box ticked because Debian did it all.
