When 2.7 was discussed several people agreed that 2.7 should include
as much 3.x stuff as possible to ease transition. That turned out to
not be very much, so I'm not sure there is more. :)

Unless of course, 2.8 starts including more of the refactored
libraries, but that's a very minor issue in porting, so it won't help

To really help, it needs to start implement things that break
backwards compatibility. That would be weird. :)
