Py3K, woot


My excitement at the release of Python 3000 is only tempered by the fact that it will be years before I can actually use it at work -- the curse of non-backwards-compatible upgrades (I already had to back-port my code from 2.5 to 2.4, with expected blowup in lines of code). I'm sad to see a stalwart like reduce() say farewell, but fixing unicode/bytes and super, changing zip/range/keys/values/etc... to return iterators, and extended iterable unpacking more than make up for the loss.

One note to the Web folks writing the Python 3000 release page: "This is a proeuction release" is an unfortunate typo.
