I agree 100% with this principle.  But "input" could definitely get a
warning when the Python 2.x --warn-me-about-python-3-incompatibilities
switch is given.  Guido's already suggested that, for example, using
the result of dict.items() for anything other than iteration should
issue such a warning.

I'm not *in*-sane. Indeed, I am so far *out* of sane that you appear a
tiny blip on the distant coast of sanity.
