The "default" python is a dependency for many other system packages, so 
changing it without understanding what effect it will have on other 
parts of the system would be dangerous. The idea behind Software 
Collections is that you only affect the packages that truly need the 
newer version.

How are you launching django and uWSGI? I'd suggest putting the SC 
command in their startup scripts to keep the new version confined to them.
