I don't know who did that page but it seems like there's some FUD there.

simplejson, ctypes, pysqlite and others are available in the 3.x
stdlib. Mercurial is a command-line tool and doesn't need to be ported
to be used for Python 3 projects. setuptools is supplanted by
distribute which should Python 3 compatible.

And I'm not sure what this package called "Python" is (“a high-level
object-oriented programming language”? like Java?), but I'm pretty sure
I've heard there's a Python 3 compatible version.

(granted, it's probably less FUD than stupid automation)
