I have an object database written in Python. It, like Python, is
dynamically typed. It heavily relies on being able to sort lists where
some of the members are None. To some extent, it also sorts lists of
other mixed types. It will be very hard to migrate this aspect of it
to Python 3.

Cheers,

Duncan.
