Actually both of those (just installed Anaconda yesterday for somebody) had for at least an year a Python 3 version. I would not say that there is no need felt to move over to Python 3, there's rather _resistance_ to moving over due to manifold retro-compatibility issues in many packages (which however have mostly been adapted by now). And LyX is no different.

Is there any real pressing need to move over to Python 3? I'm a pretty heavy python user and it just doesn't seem like the scientific community in general cares about it. I've actually never met anyone who runs anything in 3. Two of the major python package managers (anaconda and canopy) either default to 2 or don't even support 3.
