That's the point. We are going to see Python2.x around for a very long
time. A *very* long time Chris. Sadly if this conversion was planned a
wee bit better, we could have seen it happen rather quickly instead.
We could have reined in the multiplicity instead of propagating it!

Oh thanks Chris for revealing the simplicity of 2 to 3 code porting.
And might ask where you will begin to volunteer your expertise to the
gazillion lines of code that need porting? hmm?
