2to3 got in because it's part of our current recommended plan for
porting to Python 3.

Regardless of that, there's no hurry. There will be no major Python
releases for at least 6 months, and in that time, 3to2 can enjoy the
benefits of being separate from the core, frequent releases and
testing. People who are interested should look now; being "in the
core" isn't a requirement for that.

And anyway, I don't see the point of importing new stuff into SVN if
we're just going to move hg.

No, just mentoring. :)
