Indeed. Right now many people are developing Python 2 projects. They

Right now some people are developing Python 3 projects. THey migh be
interested in a way to use Python 2 libraries in such a project. This
might in fact motivate more people to start a Python 3 project in the
first place, as they aren't faced with having to port any libraries
they may want to use.
If you asked these people a question "would you like to be able to use
Python 2 libraries in Python 3 projects" (or reversed) many of them
might say 'yes'.
But none of these people may feel they *need* a py2/py3 interpreter. :)

Yes, such people might say "yes, if there isn't any other impact on my
project" (like performance). Of course there are other consequences to
adopting PyPy in a project, still..
Bringing up this idea once every while is my little contribution to
the Python 3 effort. At present I don't want to go any further. :)
