I'm not retro just for the heck of it. There's no reason to avoid Python
3.x but sometimes you just have to work with what you have.

Anyone willing to provide a couple million dollars and 12-18 months of free
24/7/365.25 support?  I have to work with four different operating systems
and three of the four have two versions. Most might have python installed
but some don't. My code has to be clean enough that people new to Python
can understand it when something goes south.

Somewhat sorry for the rant. I just get tired of people saying "upgrade"
when that's not an option.
