Isn't it entirely possible -- through liberal use of 'six' and 'from
future...' -- to write code that will operate correctly with both
Python 2 and Python 3?  I thought that, e.g., OpenStack was pursuing
exactly that strategy.

Sure, you still need your target Python 3 environment to have the
appropriate supporting modules, but that seems like a different issue.
Environments runnning Python 2 should continue to Just Work.
