Thanks Terry for posting the message, thanks Guido for drawing a line in 
the sand and sticking with it, and thanks to all the core devs who have 
worked so hard to keep the transition from 2 -> 3 as gentle as possible.

Like Python 1 before it, Python 2 has been a wonderful language to work 
with, but it is long past time to move on to Python 3. Or pay for the 
support. We can only ask volunteers for so much.
