When Will I Officially Switch To Python 3.0?

I've been writing code in Python 3.0 (3000) this week. It feels really nice. Basically the same old Python, with some corners cleaned up and reorganized.

I have tons of legacy code to support that is written in 2.4/2.5, so I still need to keep my hands in Python 2.x for quite a long time. But when will I switch over all new projects so they use Python 3.0?

Well the answer is: as soon as my 5 favorite libraries work with Python 3.0. Here is what I'm waiting on:

I have no idea when these will be ported to work with 3.0. Hopefully I'm not waiting *years* for this.

When are you switching or migrating?
