Python 3 Support
While the prebuild Debian packages of Indigo will still use Python 2.7 the code base should be migrated to support Python 3.3 (and higher) at the same time. The goal is that at least the core ROS packages will provide bilingual support for both Python 2.7 and 3.3 to encourage package maintainers to also update their Python code to support both versions (http://wiki.ros.org/python_2_and_3_compatible_code).
The current progress is tracked in the rosdistro ticket #2427.
