Perhaps I was not clear, but that was the reason of my proposal. I
agree it is not necesary, but this will help developers to transition
from Py2.X to Py3.0 in a consistent way.

I will vote +1 for any attemps to populate __future__ module if that
enables writing working Py3K code as soon as possible in Py2.X ..
