I agree here.  @Thomas:  We talked about sixer at DebConf (thanks for
the hint in any case).  But I consider the additional dependency it
introduces something I'd like to avoid if possible.  So I first try my
luck with 2to3 (and I admit I observed some surprises which did not made
me that lucky at all) before I'd use sixer as fallback.

Kind regards

       Andreas.
