at the 8th Int'l Python Conference in late January,
Guido announced that Python 2.0 has been officially
renamed as Python 3000 or "Py3K" for short.

This version will feature numerous architectural
changes and will more than likely break lots of
stuff... hopefully for the better!

anyway, he concluded by saying that at least it
should be on-time, if not a bit early!  ;-)

hope this helps!!
