If you are using it for scripting that doesn't need anything not included
in the standard library (which is true of a lot of scripting tasks), then
I would say Python 3 is very ready. You'll have some I/O performance
issues if do lots of I/O with 3.0, but 3.1 is almost out the door and
that fixes the I/O performance issue.
