And to be clear: I am therefore not arguing *not* to end it. I just
don't think that doing so will increase Python 3 adoption. I think
that's a red herring.

I have little opinion on whether to announce an official end or not,
nor when. I think the burden of maintaining many branches is a much
better argument, and that it therefore probably should be decided by
the maintainers.
