I also agree that this bug was never more than a small wart. However, I'm now curious. 

If Python 3 does not support coercion, I think that it will not be possible to write something like my xfloat class, derived from float (i.e., some binary operations between an xfloat and a float would return a float instead of an xfloat). 

If I am correct in think that it would seem to be a step backward.

Will Python 3 deal with mixed types in some other way, or has this problem been abandoned altogether? If it is the latter, I think it is a pity.
