As you can probably guess, I think such a feature would be very useful :-)
When my team started planning our migration to Python 3, we quickly
realized that the integer division issue was our biggest risk.  It has the
potential for subtle bugs to remain hidden in our code base long after the
migration, whereas most of the other Python 3 changes will be easier to

OK, good to hear that it shouldn't be difficult.  I've opened the following
issue on the github repo, to continue this discussion and hopefully attract
a volunteer. :-)
