I am sure someone could create such.  However, to me, it would be more
sensible to just program in v3.  I have decided to code in only v3 since I
do not have any previous code base to maintain and am still very much in
learning mode.   It seems that some of the more popular external modules
such as NumPy and PyGame are also now v3 compatible.

By the way, even though I am far from proficient with Python, it has already
become a useful tool for me at work!
