  Make sure to check the Python 3 bindings as well. We don't want to loose
ground going in that direction, since IPy already has Python 3's best
feature -- all strings are Unicode. Maybe the equivalent of "if
sys.version[0] >= '3':" should be buried in the helper so that that wheel
will not need to be re-invented in the future.  Just a thought.
