My initial response was to remove modules that had python 3
equivalents on the wall. This makes sense for eg setuptools and jinja
as it wouldn't be accurate to give them a double green listing and
skew the percentage.

Packages that have a single listing on the top 200 and have a python 3
equivalent I should mark as green. I guess the best solution would be
to consolidate these packages. I'll work on it.

Concerning docutils, I sent an email to Lea Wiemann
(LeWiemann at gmail.com) and am cc-ing David Goodger for the trove
classifier though I don't think I can be held responsible for this
