Hi Jim. Fair enough. This gives me better sense of the picture. In a
year or two from now I would not be surprised to see jython at 2.5 which
could be interesting for the python frameworks. It also has a plan to
evolve to P3K as well. All python projects will get there regardless. I
am certain there will be some anticipation to port packages when P3K is
out the door or as it evolves. Personally, I want to stay on the front
end of the language. A good part of my enjoyment in development is
wrapped in working and moving with the state of the art.

OK, here's my opinion. I am not speaking for ZC. I don't think we
should worry until Python 3 is much farther along. I agree with those
who think that it will be hard to move to Python 3. Put another way, I
think the benefit won't be worth the effort. My suspicion is that this
will be true for *lots* of projects. I expect Python 2 to be with us
for a long time. This is just a wild guess. A lot can change in a year
or 2. I think our official position should be that Zope is a Python 2
application and we'll evaluate opportunities to leverage Python 3 over
time as they present themselves.
I'm not going to reply to any replies to this post as I don't intend to
spend any more time on this issue myself.
