pygame is available for Python 3.  I've used it a small amount, and it
appears to work just fine.  There is also a fork of Django that
supports Python 2 and Python 3 in a single codebase:

It's still experimental right now, but that doesn't mean you couldn't
try it out.  The expectation is that it will be merged for the Django
1.5 release.
