This is the first I've heard that my main components of interest are  
ALL working on Python 3.

Which means I will probably try a test installation of Python 3 on one  
of my systems this summer.

I want to make more use of threading on multi-core systems since  
graphical rendering is a lot of 'embarrassingly parallel' type
