    No.  It may never happen, either.  The Perl crowd tried
something like this, Perl 6, which was announced in 2000 and still
hasn't come out.  The C++ standards committee has been working on a
revision of C++ since the 1990s, and that hasn't happened either.

    The general consensus is that Python 3.x isn't much of an
improvement over the existing language.  There's just not much
demand for it.
