I'm not sure about the concrete advantages Python 3 brings, other than
remaining packageable once distros move to it, but J5 is porting
PyGObject to Python 3 and once we have dropped static bindings we'll
have a much easier path to it. OTOH, if 1.0 supports 2.7 and doesn't
use anything deprecated, the move to 3.0 would be smoother.
