Another point here:

between 3.0 and 3.6 (.5?) -- py3 grew a lot of minor features that made it
easier to write py2/py3 compatible code. u"string", b'bytes %i' % something
-- and when where the various __future__ imports made available?

If these had been in place in 3.0, the whole process would have been easier
