   As there is already Python 3.2 alpha, the core of Python has already
been ported - and this mailing list is for discussion of development of the
very Python, not about working on 3rd-party libraries. I don't know if
there are "near core" unported libraries that the core team would want to
be ported.
   Hence the question belongs rather to python generic news groups/mailing
lists/fora. See http://www.python.org/community/ .
   As for my personal preferences - I would like to see these ported:
-- database drivers, especially MySQL-python and psycopg;
-- GUI frameworks, especially wxPython.

           Programmers don't die, they just GOSUB without RETURN.
