Python preprosessor

I am developing a Python application as a Python2.x and Python3.0 
version. A common code base would make the work easier. So I thought to 
try a preprosessor. GNU cpp handles this kind of code correct:

<test_cpp.py>
#ifdef python2
print u'foo', u'bar'
#endif
#ifdef python3
print('foo', 'bar')
#endif
<end code>

results:
 > cpp -E -Dpython2 test_cpp.py
...
print u'foo', u'bar'

Any other suggestions?
