I didn't get very far because even

I decided it is best to wait for Python 2.6 and to follow the transition path as outlined here:


Also, it may take a while before it is worth the effort. I couldn't find anything new in Python 3 that would be worth giving up backward compatibility, or maintaining two versions of everything. Python 3 mainly seems to be a big cleanup at this stage.
