Mark, we kinda proved we're willing to break backwards compatibility in the name of improving usability when we embarked down the path of creating Python 3 and an associated transition plan from Python 2, rather than just continuing to develop Python 2.

Compared to some of the backwards compatibility breaks within the Python 2 series that were handled using the normal deprecating cycle (removing string exceptions, anyone?), this one would be truly trivial.
