Nope. Despite the successful GSoC project, there's still a long way to go to make Py3k work, and no one particularly interested in it or demanding it. In fact, overall Py3k uptake is very slow. Which isn't very surprising, as there's very little to gain by switching to it and more than a little headache. At any rate, most of the world appears to still be on Python 2.6 and can blissfully ignore that's there's no 2.8 planned for probably another year or more. Which means the Python devs still have a year to come to their senses about discontinuing the language people actually use. -- Mathematics is the supreme nostalgia of our time.
