And why do you think it will never happen?  Guido has already said
publicly multiple times that the 2.x branch will not go past 2.9, so
unless Python goes stale there will be a 3.0 release.  Python 3.0
might not be around the corner, but will come eventually and this
stuff needs to get done at some point.
