It is time to put this Python 2 to Python 3 bogeyman into the dustbin
of history. With Python 3.3 and later conversion of Python 2.7 codes to
Python 3.x (x ≥ 3) codes is relatively straightforward unless your code
is fundamentally based on a string of length 1 being a 8-bit byte
(which is why Mercurial has a problem). No other Python 2 codes have a
problem other than intransigence of the programmers.
