The differences between the two are not *so* large (Unicode support was added
after Python 1.5.2 but I don't think that is an issue here yet). However,
some syntactic conveniences provided in Python 2.0 are so nice that they are
widespread. For example,
    - string methods:
      Before you had to do this:
        import string
        print string.split("hello there buddy", " ")
      Now you can do this:
        s = "hello there buddy"
        s.split(" ")
    - augmented assignment: i.e. +=,-=,*=,etc.
