Python 3000 is a code name for a future redesign of
the python language.

The stuff in CVS is "bleeding edge python", and is
currently known as "1.5.2+".  To use this in paralell,
just install it by hand (copy the interpreter and the
Lib directory to some suitable location).

1.6 alphas will be available soonish.
