As far as I'm concerned python 2 is perfectly okay.
Please reconsider this position. For the 70% of the world whose native language does not fit well into ISO 8859-1, apps developed in Python 3 with no consideration for their needs are far more likely to be easily adapted to their environments than those developed in Python 2.
If you don't care about the rest of the world, fine, but the rest of the world isn't going to care about you, and that matters to building a Python project given that Indians, Chinese, and a smattering of others account for a large fraction of the "pre-professional" labor we get through GSoC. They tend to be far more focused on mobile apps than their mentors in my experience.
I completely understand your point but at this stage I'm only thinking of hobby projects that will probably be used by myself, my wife and our family. Nothing mainstream, google playable, etc.
For larger scale projects I'd completely agree with you, python 3 is the way to go.
