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.
