I'm in the process of doing the conversion.  asyncore.py was no
problem, but asynchat.py relies heavily on the 2.x buffer() object
(specifically the slicing aspects thereof), which went away, to be
replaced by the seemingly incomplete memoryview object.  Are
memoryviews going to be gaining slicing ability (in the case of
1-dimensional memory views, which also have step forced to 1)?  Are we
just waiting for an implementation?  Or because of the ability to
offer a memoryview into just about any object now, "slicing" only some
objects (1-dimensional in particular) breaks consistency for all other
