perhaps the bugs that are show stoppers are providing the impetus to
move forward to 3.x rather than fix? This may be an argument to stop
back-porting fixes. (security bugs being the exception)

I have a number of one-off projects in place and running without issues
on python versions all the way back to probably 1.52 (it's turtles all
the way down) In all cases, the python version is perfect (or
sufficient) as it sits. I do continue to support the applications and
find myself writing mostly in some common core level of 2.x.

That'd work for me. I'm not looking to upgrade the python versions of
functioning productive code. Of course, neither are my customers
looking to pay for me to f*ck^h^h^h^hupgrade up their non-buggy systems.
