[Python-Dev] 2to3 and print function

At the moment, fix_print.py does the Right Thing when it finds ``from  
__future__ import print_function``... But the 2to3 parser gets upset  
when print() is passed kwargs:
$ cat x.py
from __future__ import print_function
print("Hello, world!", end=' ')
$ 2to3 x.py
RefactoringTool: Can't parse x.py: ParseError: bad input: type=22,  
value='=', context=('', (2, 26))

What would be the best way to start fixing this?

#2412 is the related bug.
