Developing for Python (2.x or 3)?

Hi all,

I am in the process of choosing which Python version for a brand new
application. Van Rossum in an interview recently advised all new
applications to use Python3 but I am afraid, most libraries (PyGtk,
PyQt, Networking Libs, etc) won't follow suit to 3.0 and I will end up
using a version of the language which can't connect to libraries because
 they haven't been ported yet.

Should this be a concern?
