Will do.

Probably. But I would prefer to minimize the first patch as much as
possible. I understand
that the faster the good quality of Python 3 is achieved the better,
but I would prefer
to do that in several, smaller and hopefully more manageable steps. At
the moment
Python 3.3.3 in Yocto simply does not run (looks like just copy from
Python 2.x just to
make it compile), so I think you can cut me some slack here as my patch makes
Python 3 run in Yocto. On my side I promise more patches in near
future, i.e. more
SRC_URI patches need review, pip integration would be nice and some of
the modules
like decimal need additional work.
