Thanks for taking the initiative on this one!
I would like to contribute to this effort. I am currently working on porting
configobj to Python3k and expect to get it done within the coming month.
I feel that if we can generate a list of packages rated by
importance(`importance` here being the number of packages which require this
package as a dependency) we should be able to focus our energies better on
porting them over first.
I feel that most developers are reluctant to work on porting their
dependencies too, aside from their own package(which is of course,
understandable); hence this approach might be of help in that case.
