The sheer amount of overhaul as documented in
http://www.python.org/dev/peps/pep-3100/ makes it already not backwards
compatible.

Python has been progressing piece by piece, but the 2.x -> 3.0 transition
allows to clean up some thing in a good way, rather than bolting things on
top of others.

Anyway, please search around a bit, this kind of stuff has been extensively
discussed in the past.
