It is true that there are 3rd-party modules that do not work with 3.x, 
including a few that one might want to use is a new project.

It is also true that there are language features in 3.4 that do not work 
with 2.x, or 3.2- or 3.3, including some that one might want to use in a 
new project.  For instance, Unicode works much better in 3.3 than in any 
version before. That is *only* available in 3.3+.

And it is true that there are 'feature' still in 2.7 that do not work in 
3.x.  But these are mostly nuisances that we are better of without.
