If we drop 2.6 for P, then 2.7 will be the minimum Python, but in any event, I
agree with you.

I have to admit that after thinking about this a lot, I am torn between
wanting to aggressively lead on the migration to Python 3, and wanting to have
a really stable P-series with no ftbfs or other lurking problems in our Python
2 stack.  My conservative side is peeking out. :)

To the extent that we can do both, great.  I will put this on our agenda for
UDS-P and I'm sure we'll get a lively and diverse discussion about our short
and long term plans here.
