Olpc python comment 000

I think it would be a very bad idea if it meant that non-bugfix additions to Python 2 were going to stop. But it doesn't mean that -- the stated plan is actually to backport as much from Python 3 to Python 2 as possible, where it doesn't break backward compatibility (e.g., the IO layer changes are not at all portable, but things like generic functions or better string formatting are). So Python 2 still has a lot of life in it.
