I will let Nick handle the PEP wording.

Why call it polemic? If you want to use ubuntu LTS you're forcing
yourself to stick to a particular Python version for a longer time.
Which means you don't want to have to adjust your code. Which again
means that you're better of with the Python 2.x ecosystem which is
proven, does not change nearly as quickly as the Python 3 one
(hopefully) so if you have the choice between those two you would chose
2.x over 3.x. That's what this sentence is supposed to say. That's not
polemic, that's just a fact.

That is not a personal-feeling-PEP. If people would be 100% happy with
Python 3 we would not have these discussions, would we.
Why is it that I'm getting "attacked" on this mailinglist for writing
this PEP, or the wording etc.
