If it is released to version 1.0 with support for Python 2 then it will need to support Python 2 for the forseeable future. It’ll be deployed all over the place with Python 2 - when would the Python 2 be removed ever after 1.0? David Murray has made substantial changes to email in Py3 - supporting those in both 2 and 3 could be an open question. A Python 3-only version 1.0 has the longer term gain  of never having to write mixed 2/3 code after 1.0.

Debian Wheezy(aka Stable) ships Python3, but it's Python 3.2.3, and IIRC, Barry said Mailman3 now needs Python 3.4 in order to be fully supported.

FWIW, Debian Jessy (aka Testing/Frozen?) has Python 3.4.2.
