I think this is the key, really. I see a lot of people asking about when
libraries will get ported to python 3, and it seems to me like a lot of
people could just do a little reading on the tools provided for migrating,
pull the dev version of the library, and take a crack at it.

I'm sure the various library authors would be appreciative.

Of course, it's probably hard for a lot of people to find time to do so
(this does not exclude the library authors), and a good amount of the people
asking probably aren't quite to the point that they could just dive in to an
unfamiliar codebase.

I would say that porting libraries to 3 would probably be a decent way of
improving ones python chops though.
