fsck -V all over that. Python 3 has hardly been released, it'll take
years before it's in the majority if all distros, and imho removing
cmp() was a seirous booboo (witness that they couldn't actually do it
until 3.0.1 ...).

try:
    cm=cmp
except NameError:
    def cmp(x, y) ...

Betcha no major Linux distro will have 3.0 as the default and only
interpreter in less thatn 10 years.
