I support this idea even if the soak must restart or be extended.


* we still get 1.13 out in time for the holidays

* we get one STS release with Py3 before the
  next LTS release

* we support Py3 before Py2 goes "out of
  support" -- there's no "lapse in coverage" for
  customers who have IT policies about that

(One corporate or government customer wrote
to users@ some months ago and specifically
mentioned concern because of such a policy;
I'd love to reply and say that Py3 is supported
on time.)

Bottom line: we'll be a little late in the release but in exchange we'll
have one really whiz-bang compelling new feature -- that people have been
asking for -- to write about in the
release notes.
