Several Linux distributions and Conda install Sage with system (in case of Conda it is Conda's Python) Python; they have patches allowing them to do so.
Not sure which ones already have this for Python3 (apart from Conda).

And we are planning to allow the use of system Python in the source Sage installation, too, but it is quite a bit of work.

Hi! I have an instruction here , how to build sage with python3. But sage uses, I think, its own python3. So when sage wants to import something, sage can't do it, because libs are installed on system python3. Mosule six for example. I had an idea, make smth like this:

import importlib.util
spec = importlib.util.spec_from_file_location("six", "/usr/lib/python3/dist-packages/")
six = importlib.util.module_from_spec(spec)

but it doesn't work with numpy. Help me please! May be I can change sage python to my system python3?
