A look at the PyPy 2.0 release
However there are also a couple of "advantages" this time around:
1. They are _just_ doing python3 for F13, no extra modules. This cuts both ways, it won't be useful for much (IMO) ... but it also shouldn't break much.
2. python3 is _vastly_ different to python2, so people won't mind as much if Fedora ends up treating them as two separate languages that happen to end/start in close proximity.
3. The python maintainer is doing it full time, so if the world blows up he might have the time to fix everything.

That's odd, seeing as how Mandriva had python 2.4 and python 2.5 parallel installed for multiple releases. Hell, it _still_ has python 2.4 available in Mandriva 2010, alongside 2.6. I'm not aware of it ever having blown up the world in all that time.
