To: "Terry Carroll" <carroll at tjc.com>

Based on what everyone has said and the fact that my learning material is
for 3, I think I will be okay learning 3 and will stumble into the gotchas
as I develop with 2.7. Luckily my experience as a programmer should keep me
warm at night :)


PS. I shall resist the temptation to force python to use curly braces and
will learn to embrace indentation.
