I disagree, it's fine to use named branch for all our version branches.

It's much more convenient than cloning the project, and it's faster to switch
from one branch to the other to do merge work.

While cloning if fine for experimentation purposes,

I am -1 for cloning the repo for the py3k branch because it will be
our 'official' branch
at some point.

If it's required, I can write a how-to use branches for this specific project,
and set up Lennart's branch for the py3 support.
