I'd like to add here that at PyCon 2011 (if memory serves me right) I got a verbal
agreement from many of you that there would be no objection to me creating
an _unofficial_ "2.8" fork of python.  It could even be hosted on hg.python.org.
I forget if we decided on a name for it, but I remember advocating it as "Python classic."

For reasons of work and others, I never got round to creating that branch but
recently Stackless development has picked up the pace to the point where we
feel it necessary to break with strict 2.7 conformance.
