Good catch. Yes, we should update INSTALL to reflect that Python 3 is
supported for the build and test process, even if it's not yet supported
by the swig bindings in trunk and 1.13.x. Would you be able to update
that? You're welcome to just commit changes to trunk/INSTALL directly,
if that's easier for you.

As to the test suite patches, I think they're ready to be committed,
aren't they?
