This is my problem to solve... I work with a lot of [non-production]
crypto where byte strings are a normal way of manipulating and storing
keys and other artifacts. Under Python2 I have few/no Unicode
issues. With Python3's default string type being Unicode, there are a
lot of subtle ways where my codes go south. Like I say, it is my
I will convert to Py3, but not likely before summer. Besides 2to3,
any other tools/suggestions would be welcome. (Perhaps there is a
Master switch to disable Unicode? ;-)
Changing the subject... I say -1 on backporting more 3.x features to
2.6/2.7. As previously mentioned, leave the carrot. And best
intentions aside, backports can introduce problems of their own.
