Sorry about that blank message, I'm not sure what happened.  I meant to say:

One other thing we should decide: which Python 3 version should we include in

At UDS, I had hoped to go with 3.2, but I now think that's too ambitious.
First, building out the Python 2.7 stack is taking more work than I thought
and second, I'm not sure it's worth going through the whole pre-approval for
SRUs to get us from what will be 3.2beta at the time of Maverick's feature
freeze, to 3.2 final after its release.  Also, given how little Python 3 is
used in production these days, I'm not sure there's a lot of benefit to being
so aggressive.

I think we should stick with Python 3.1.x for Maverick and switch to 3.2 for
N.  Any objections?
