One piece of encouraging news I heard today is that mod_wsgi
apparently works with 3.0 already - which may well mean that more web
software than I'd originally anticipated will work sooner rather than

But it's certainly true that Python (all versions, not just 3.0) is
more of an ecosystem than just the CPython core. "Batteries included"
notwithstanding. And it'll take longer for the 3.0 ecosystem to grow
than the 2.6 one.
