Comment (by hobu):

 > the question why there is for pdal Python3 dependencies

 PDAL both embeds and extends Python, and it is built against Python3 for
 OSGeo4W, not Python2. The pdal-python package will not work against
 Python2.  There is some background on the topic at

 PDAL depends upon Numpy when it extends Python.

 The matplotlib dependency is a convenience for the PDAL workshop example
