The Python developpers suggest to use 2.x as long as you can, and use 
the conversion tools to translate existing code from 2.x to 3.0 code 
whenever 3.0 is ready.

So I vote that the Python bundle should support 2.x as long as possible. 
Python 3.0 support should probably be done in at least a separate 
syntax, and perhaps even a different bundle?
