Lack of py3k is nowhere near blocker. Not even critical. Not even bug. Just 'normal' feature-request.

py3k is entirely different language, and requires massive rewrite of third-party applications, which will takes years. py3k is not related in any way to python2, expect the name and the author. Not backwards compatible. The py3k is a new language in fact.
