Also, I should have put one more caveat on here, and this one is
*important*: please be careful about switching production sites to
python 3 right now... it's more for development than production.  If
you're already running a site using python 2.X, carry on!  If you're
doing development, please do help us test out python 3!  This should be
resolved by 0.8.0.

The reason is a change to the way the database upgrades work... this
uses Alembic, in addition to sqlalchemy-migrate.  We've set it up to
only do this on python 3... for now.  Once we're sure things are the way
we expect, we'll do it on both.

Thanks all!
