I think this has time. I'm (now) confident that people will port to
Python 3 sooner rather than later, just because it's there. In fact,
we have to be careful not to talk too many people into porting, since
there will be some glitches which need to be resolved, and may not get
resolved before 3.2 or so. So people with a natural wariness are advised
to trust this wariness, or else all their concerns become
self-fulfilling prophecies.
