Right.  I can't remember the details, but I've seen similar types of
dual-plugin support in other applications.  Generally it means you can
*either* import Python 2 code or Python 3 code in a single process, but once
you've fired up the first runtime, the application will prevent you from
firing up the other.  So yes, I think Vim would have to put that guard in, and
I agree that there's not much benefit in trying to make this work in Python.
