[Python-Dev] Running Py2.6 with the -3 option

Some effort needs to be made to clear the standard library of -3 warnings.  Running -3 on production code usually involves 
exercising library code so the useful result is obscured by Python complaining about itself.  Since that use case involves the users 
own tests, I don't think the effort needs to be extended to our own unittest suite.  But the rest of the library could likely 
benefit from a good -3 cleanup.
