Re: [school-discuss] New Python Version

It should be noted that they are also going to continue the 2.x line
for at least one (most probably more) versions, so the transition to a
non-compatible upgrade of Python will take a few years... more than
enough time to switch over.

Also, they are releasing an application that will do machine
translation from 2.x->3, and the developers are very confident that it
will cover almost all Python 2 software.

This is not a move-with-us-or-go-to-Hell move like PHP4 -> 5 or Visual
Basic -> VB Net.
