   There are 523 packages marked with Python :: [2, 2.1, ...] and I hope
more than that work with Python 2.x.

   What I would like to encourages is adding Python :: 3 or a more
specific minimum supported version classifier to packages that support
Python 3. I wouldn't want to go to the level of adding a classifier for
each version of Python supported since a package will often stay valid
when a new Python is released.
