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. -- http://fam-tille.de
