You also know it to be the case, unless you think *every* person is a
liar who has told you in the past that they are working on a Python 3
code base.

The obvious lesson there is: Don't take the limits of your own immediate
experience as limiting the totality of all experience.

That simply isn't true, unless you think it more likely everyone who
discusses their Python 3 code base is lying.
