I'm sure there would be widespread applause and congratulations if such 
a thing were actually released. That sort of "support" is unhelpful 
towards actually making such a release.

The needed support is the actual skilled effort of writing the required 
Python3 code. I don't have the time to hunt down the specific 
statements, but I have vague recollections that both Barry and Mark have 
said repeatedly that doing so would be substantially more effort than 
they are willing to put into anything built on the MM2 architecture.
