This sounds like remarkably bad advice. That's like saying "I bought a
can of motor oil in my department store and whatever engine that is good
for that's the car that I'll buy and put into!"

Lucky for you 2.7.5 isn't all that different from Py3 and most of it

precision ints, int division operator, real Unicode support) but that's
no big deal.
