Do you think it is still the right call or has the time come to switch to 
Python 3? 
Your call is now almost 2 years old and if you'd like Stretch to have Python 3 
support, now seems like a good time to make the switch so there's plenty of 
time to catch and fix bugs if the switch would trigger that.
