Re: But but
If they had found some way to fudge round that issue I believe most reticence in migrating to Python 3 would have disappeared. But it seems the desire for 'Python Purity' outweighed pragmatism.
What worries me more than other cases, where a language or framework becomes "not supported" but everything works the same the day after as it did the day before, is the current plan appears to be tending towards pulling the rug out from under 2.7 user's feet. It's really not clear to me what will happen when 2.7 reaches 'end of life'.
