Yeah, I think making an attempt to make things more generic
and less python-specific would be great. One other pro
I would add to your list is that doing this could be
used to more easily keep blender working with the various
versions of python (i.e., the decision "Should we make
blender only work with python 3.0?" can be changed to "Should
we make blender work with python 3.0 for those that
want/need it, and still work with lesser versions of
python for those that want/need them?".
