[Python-Dev] 2.7 Release? 2.7 == last of the 2.x line?

Not that anyone has asked yet, but here's my opinion on two issues  
that have been raised on the python-dev mailing list lately:

	+1 on 2.7 release with as much 3.0 "easy-port goo" as is practicable  
without delaying the product beyond the tentative schedule.  Sooner  
would, of course, be better but I'm sure PEP 373 was produced after  
due consideration of all pertinent factors.

	+1 on 2.7 being the last of the 2.x series.  Enough already!

I, personally, haven't even written my first line of 3.x code, nor  
have I had any good reason to.

If I saw the actual end of the line at 2.7, I would actually start  
looking for 3.x versions of my favorite tools and would be much more  
inclined to help push them along ASAP.

Right now, so much that I use on a daily basis doesn't even have a 3.x  
roadmap, much less any sort of working implementation, that I don't  
see switching to 3.x ever unless the 2.x line ends, and soon!

Just my one vote.
