Yes. BBB is a yocto/OE reference board and has meta-yocto-bsp support.

The above is one reason - the second reason for using it is no running
parts on it (silence :-) ).

I read your manual for old tbot:

As fair as I can see it uses python 2.7.

Unfortunately, new one https://rahix.de/tbot/install.html [*]

relies on python3. At lease on my setup, I do need pathlib and ntpath

BTW: What is the "blessed" version of python3?

The "thud" provides:
Python 3.5.6 (default, Jan 12 2019, 22:41:06) 
[GCC 8.2.0] on linux

When I do install paramiko via pip3 (as advised in [*]), I do see
following error:

root at beaglebone-yocto:~/tbot# python3 setup.py install --user
random: python3: uninitialized urandom read (24 bytes read)
  File "setup.py", line 8
    about: typing.Dict[str, str] = {}
SyntaxError: invalid syntax

Any help?

(I'm also now testing the "stock" debian 9 image from beaglebone.org
