Porting patches from 3.x to 2.7 would be much easier if print were always a function and not a statement in 2.7.

Two modules, configHandler and PyShell, have been converted to print functions ("from __future__ import print_function" and () added).

GrepDialog has parentheses added everywhere, WidgetRedirector has them in 1 of 2 places.  Both could use the import so "print(a,b)" is not printed as a tuple when not intended to.  I intend to patch these separately.

These modules only have print statements:  ColorDelegator, EditorWindow, FileList, MultiCall, Percolator, ScrolledList, UndoDelegator, WindowList,,

I believe these could all be patched correctly most easily with the help of 2to3 with just the print fixer used. The last two use >>file.

MultiCall also has commented-out prints. RemoteDebugger only has such.
These could be uncommented, fixed, and recommented in a separate patch.

Any adjustment of print args to match 3.x should at least be a separate patch, if not issue.

I no longer plan to backport enough patches to make further fixes worthwhile in the absence of otherwise working on a file.  In the absence of adequate tests, there is also the non-0 chance of introducing bugs.
