Another thing we shouldn't forget is that Hyperkitty or Postorius might
not be the only apps living in a Django project. Some people might
choose to integrate them into their long-running Django sites, with lots
of Py2-app dependencies.

Of course it would be easier for us to just port our apps to Py3. But as
far as I remember integratability was the main argument in favor of
keeping our Django apps bilingual when we discussed the topic at Pycon
last year. But then, hey, one *could* also argue we ignore these issues
in order to make a point.
