Although there is a Python 3 compatible distribution of unittest2, which is
currently called unittest2py3k. (It is maintained as a set of patches
against CPython head - hence separate distributions for the same package
names). Python 2 Only is still applicable to unittest2, until / unless I
decide to use a single distribution for both.

My only worry is that the classifier would seem to indicate that there
*isn't* a Python 3 distribution available, when in fact there is.

All the best,

May you do good and not evil
May you find forgiveness for yourself and forgive others
May you share freely, never taking more than you give.
