It's not even a disaster. It's fairly easy to write 2/3 compatible
code; in fact, a lot of my students end up accidentally running their
code under Py2 and only notice when they get strange errors from
input() with non-integers, or maybe if they use print() and get an
empty tuple displayed, or something like that.
