This is now done. There's some documentation updates still to do, as 
well as adding the Py3k warning back in to the 2.6 version, but I won't 
have time to do that for this release - I dropped the tracker item down 
to deferred blocker so it gets back on the list for beta 3.

Looking at the buildbots, getting the multiprocessing fixes in looks 
like it will be a major help in getting more of them to go green, and 
the import related lib2to3 tests also appear to need some attention.
