says: "2to3 must be run (at the moment) with Python 2.x!" However, it
doesn't even import under 2.5.2 because of print() statements,
'Exception as err', .relative imports, etc.

Is this an attempt to make people upgrade to 2.6 before converting to 3?
Or is the desire to eventually run under 3.0? If neither, would y'all
welcome a version that ran under 2.5? I'd be happy to try my hand at
