Unladen Swallow is a serious cog in the works as far as Python 3 is
concerned. I expect the speed boosts to be significant and they're
targetting the 2.x releases. If a public release candidate is ready,
it's a solid argument to *not* migrate to 3.0. I'd love for the
changes to be ported to 3.0 but have no idea of how much work or what
kind is involved which is why I'm itching to have Mahadevan speak this
next Sunday. :)
