This makes the same false claim "It’s not like anyone is using Python 3
anyway, (so go ahead and bread existing Py3 code". At least some of the
20+ million windows downloads must be in use.

One legitimate request is better installation of dependencies, which is
in progress. This is not a 2 versus 3 issue, unless there are 3-only
Some want concurrency primitives like go has. Guido went for a new
module instead. I don't know what the importand differences are.
Some want a better REPL, including color. The Idle shell already has the
syntax colorizing. I don't know what else might have been meant.

In my opinion, about the best non-developer blog on Python 3 -- by a
sensible, satisfied user. "in March 2014 Python 3 downloads overtook
Python 2 downloads by a healthy margin 54% vs 46%." OK, that was boosted
by the release of 3.4. But the point still stands.
