Description : library for writing programs for both Python 2 and 3
Pies is a Python 2 and 3 compatibility layer with the philosophy that all
code should be Python 3 code. Starting from this viewpoint means that
when running on Python 3 pies adds virtually no overhead.
Instead of providing a bunch of custom methods (leading to Python code
that looks out of place on any version) pies aims to backport as many
of the Python 3 API calls, imports, and objects to Python 2 - relying
on special syntax only when absolutely necessary.
This is a dependency for frosted, which I also filed an ITP for.
A similar package is python-six.
I plan to maintain it in collab-maint.
