No.  Please read this:


The main point is in bold:

    "Don't change your APIs incompatibly when porting to Py3k."

Repeated again for emphasis:

    "Don't change your APIs at the same time as porting to Py3k!"

(In other words, I 100% agree with Lennart.  I don't mean to pick on 
you, Steve, I just think it's very important that future readers of this 
thread get referred to the relevant BDFL proclamation...)
