Debian Bullseye forcing move to Python3

How to install pip2 and then any required python2 modules, and continue to use Python2 code I've already written, and don't want/need to re-write to python3.

1. Python-is-python2

sudo apt-get install python-is-python2

2. pip2

from https://www.linuxcapable.com/how-to-install-python-pip-pip3-on-debian-11-bullseye

sudo apt install curl -y
curl https://bootstrap.pypa.io/pip/2.7/get-pip.py --output get-pip.py
sudo python2 get-pip.py

Then it's possible to install python2 modules via pip2

gm4slv@shack:~$ sudo pip2 install numpy
