Well, since the converter is designed to convert 2.6 and above, and since 
there isn't much Python 2.6 code out there yet, I'd say nothing 
significant.  :)

Anyways, it is not designed to convert arbitrary code that's lying 
around: it's designed to convert a supported subset of Python 2.6+ into 
Python 3.0.  You'd have to write "transitional Python" to use the tool.
