As stated, yes, very much so.

I think it's unfortunate that some of this discussion has generated
more heat than light because there are three different goals here all
stemming from "promoting Python 3": (1) "... as a great language", (2)
"... as a great production-ready development environment" (for *some*
applications), and (3) "... as a great production-ready development
environment" (period, or to take a page from Linus's book, "World
Domination! Now!")

I think Nick's approach starts to phase in a change in promotion
effort appropriately.  But it's only a start.
