   The much more likely thing to happen is that people stick to Python 2
   or build broken stuff on Python 3. Or they go with Go. Which uses an
   even simpler model than Python 2: everything is a byte string. The
   assumed encoding is UTF-8. End of the story.

I have similar feelings, except that I'm not convinced Go is the answer.
