The next generation of Python programmers

Old projects started before python3 was created are certainly important. For new projects, I think python3 compatibility is practical and likely to improve your life in the future.
Even with the python2/3 compatibility break, python + included batteries is still a more stable platform for me than many options (nodejs/ruby/c++/haskell) and a more modern language than others (C, bash). This is why I choose python (2∩3, or 3) for my scripting projects that I occasionally modify and hope to keep working for a decade with minimal effort.
If I had to choose between python3 and ipv6 deployment, though, I would choose ipv6: python is not as critical to the survival of an open internet.

Fortunately, you don't :) . The answer of the masses so far seems to be "neither" :( .
