I ported my APSW SQLite access module many months before Python 3.0 was
released (around the time of the first beta release). The same codebase
supports both Python 2 and 3 with very few conditionals and a few macros
to make some Python 2 C api look like the Python 3 C api (eg pretending
that the bytes type exists). Python 2.3 and up are supported on all
It took longest to port my test suite over as I have 99.6% code coverage
which is achieved by the test suite abusing every corner of the language
and implementation. Fortunately a whole host of issues go away because
of no 8 bit strings in Python 3.
Other tools like Sphinx made my documentation so much better. That
actually psyches me the most since Python is all about ease of reading
