Using Python 2

For what it's worth: I have done successful conversions of numerous code
bases from Python 2 to Python 3, and that characterisation does not fit
at all. The resulting code base is much more Pythonic.

Exactly so. You should ignore the far too academic debates that flourish
here, and concentrate only on the practical differences going from
Python 2 to Python 3. Those alone make it worthwhile to learn Python 3.
