Yikes! Backwards incompatibility is a poor excuse for NIH syndrome.
Don't reinvent the wheel, please. If there's an existing
implementation of a thing, that can save you a lot of work. Even if it
ties you to Python 2, that's worth it, most of the time. If you want
to migrate to Python 3, help that library forward, rather than trying
to make some bespoke replacement you think will be a killer app.
