I think the odds of Python getting
from __future__ import pony
are slightly higher than there being a Python 2.8. I assume by "pony" you really mean what I'd like to have:
from __future__ import everything
since my goal is to write Python 3 compatible code even though I'm temporarily stuck with Python 2 due to stack issues. The __future__ imports makes it easier to write forward compatible code. As it is, I have to list the individual imports in every file and I also add:
range = xrange
It's unfortunate we didn't add this (and all other changed builtins) to future_builtins in 2.7.
