[Bf-committers] Python 3.1 proposal

my general opinion (user and dev-wise) is positive +1/+1 regarding this.
I have only 3 concerns:
1) You don't mention gameplayer in BGE there.
How would that be affected by your zipping/not zipping modules proposal?
2) In 2.4xx I was a bit worried with the risks of a full python
bundled with Blender (problems if you open untrusted .blend files).
But if you say we are safe(r) now, then let's do it. (or if this
concern is not that relevant).
3) Compatibility of external modules with python 3.1.
It doesn't look like all external python libraries will be ported to
3.0 any time soon. For example CLR (integration between Python and
dotNET) development doesn't look so optmistic (for the ammount of work
required) to be updated to 3.0.-
I hope that change before 2.5 release. But in case it doesn't, what
are the alternatives? It's not going to be possible to build Blender
or BGE with python 2.xx after your changes, right?

> If there are any questions Id like to try resolve before this Sunday meeting.
