Orbited is just a relay hub. It's a separate application. While it would be nice
if it ran on the same Python version as the IPython process, it doesn't have to.
Any Python 3 system you deploy to will have Python 2 for a long, long time. I
don't think it would hold up IPython (or even a web notebook component of
IPython) from transitioning to Python 3.
