I am also in agreement that working-around the failing tests is the best 
option, with a backup of just disabling the tests until the python3 
incompatibilities are resolved. We need to work away from python2 wherever 
possible. Since the upstream is aware of the problem I see avoiding python2 as 
a reasonable alternative to work-arounds.
