I think you may have drifted into an alternate universe. There is no 
Python 2.8 and nobody has done any hard work on writing it, so I have no 
idea what point you think you are making. (That's the trouble with snappy 
one-line answers to serious questions -- they often make no sense to 
anyone outside of your head.)

The OP has done a lot of hard work at writing a Python 2 to Go translator 
(allegedly -- we haven't actually been shown his project) and assuming it 
works and done what he says it does, that's valuable. Python 2.7 will be 
part of the Python ecosystem until at least 2022. Furthermore, adapting 
an existing Python2 to Go compiler to work with Python3 will be much 
easier than writing one from scratch.
