I started looking into this and was able to chip away at things to the
point that the tests actually execute, but there's still a bit of work
to actually get them to pass with Python 3.

I also wasn't taking any care to avoid breaking Python 2 functionality,
nor do I currently have a py2 environment to try.

Do we know of anyone using these bindings? Is it better to explicitly
deprecate them? At the very least, the py3 incompatibility should
probably be documented.
