Well, I'm not certain, to tell you the truth.  

However, the only non-backward-incompatible change that will work is to introduce a new command that gives one access to the "real" print function, and that to me feels really really ugly and, if I may be somewhat hyperbolic, undignified.

In other words, I am willing to break this particular "feature" in a feature release as the price of restoring pdb's consistency with the python language and the history of the changes between python2 and python3...because it is primarily a UI change and not a change that affects programs (in the general case, at least).

It shouldn't depend on only my view though.  If Georg doesn't want to decide, we should put it out to python-dev.
