As of r54311, 2to3 now works with Python 2.4. I tried making it work
with Python 2.3, but it's going to require changes wrt. how 2to3
interacts with the logging module, and I don't know enough about
logging to know what needs to change.

I thought the decision had been made (or at least, the consensus
reached) that sys.exc_info() would stick around in Python 3.
