I think, at first let's see how Python 3 spreads, how successful it is and how 
much developers will switch. Then I assume that there will be a Python 2 
version (perhaps 2.6?) that will be backwards compatible and also compatible 
to Python 3 in most cases. Then it will be time to make Zope2/3 compatible 
with Python 2.6, which may not be that hard after all. After that it will be 
possible to slowly migrate from Python 2.6 -> Python 3, without breaking 
anything and without splitting Zope 2/3 in a Python 2 and Python 3 version.

I personally don't see this so dramatically, especially because many things 
are still unclear in Python 3 and because of the long timescale.
