> Just curious why 2to3 would not replace range() with list(range())?
In most usages of range(), using the 3.0 range() will work just as
well, and be more efficient.
If I wanted to write code that works in both versions (which I
understand is not the 2to3 objective), then I would use range().
If I worry about creating a list in 2.x, I would write
at the top of the file.
