I have a lot of experience with CPython. One of my upcoming tasks is to
convert a C based Python library to support both Py2 and Py3 which will
force me to learn the conversion issues. But I won't be getting to that
for a month or two. I could probably take a look this issue after I've
got some more experience with that. But I don't have time in the
immediate near future, so if you can wait I could probably help. FWIW
the Py2 migration to Py3 is just starting to get attention in a lot of
places, despite Py3 having been out several years most places are still
running Py2 so I don't think we've reached a critical need just yet.
