This brought to mind a tangential thought.  It's too bad that when
version updates break backwards compatibility, that the software isn't
renamed.  It's not like there is a shortage of letters.  Then, the two
versions could be installed in parallel, and those that can't be
updated could still be accessed with the old version.  Migration
wouldn't need to be an all or nothing thing, but could be a gradual

I thought something like 
pythoo, pythop, pythoq, etc.
pythpn, pythqn, pythrn, etc.

Or, now for something completely different,
parrot.  Or defunct.  Or gastric.  Or bflsplk.

Maybe for python4 this will happen. 

And now, back to your regular programming.
