The PEP 460 discussion threads made it clear that some of the

transition were struggling with the fundamental conceptual differences
between the Python 2 and Python 3 text models.

Since other folks (including Armin Ronacher) have also struggled with
that distinction, I added a new question and answer to my Python 3
Q&A: http://python-notes.curiousefficiency.org/en/latest/python3/questions_and_answers.html#what-actually-changed-in-the-text-model-between-python-2-and-python-3
