Thats what I figured... and thats why my own Python stuff is not  
compatible with 3.x...I'd really like to find these people who feel  
the need to change stuff that breaks things and flog them.

I am none to happy with things moving in this direction be GNUR or  
just in general.. I'd honestly like to see python3 rm -r *'d from the  
planet and just improve 2.x WITHOUT BREAKING THE ABI! Buttttt nooooo!  
We can't be that sensible.

Not exactly sure what my plan is on my little programs as they are  
mission critical for me/work..Move to some 18.04 VM's/LXC's and  
possibly sit tight there.. I am not a fan of change. :) :) ;)

There is a 2to3 script thing I will run that on things to see where it  
flags stuff, it might at least be a good reference point to start  

I am working on an updated install.sh for 18.10-19.10 where cmake  
fubars up things...and it will flag 20.04 as incompatible and stop  
till advised. I'll get that to as soon as I work it all out to my
