I think in its current form it is a net negative. From time to time, 
Python 2 package developers have shown up on pydev list and expressed 
their resentment at being 'pressured' to convert yesterday. It makes it 
hard to have a conversation.

I always wondered what they were talking about. Core developers have 
mostly tried to avoid resentment-inducing pressure. At least now I know 
one source of the blowback, even if it is misdirected.
