Now you're equivocating.  The discussion has been about whether Python
2 and Python 3 are compatible in the "interchangeable" sense, not in
the "capable of functioning together" sense.

Indeed. If a man has a scripting language, and a woman has a scripting
language, the two would differ because there are things each can do
that the other cannot. But there's a lot of things that both can do,
so the two languages would be highly similar in purpose and

Hmm. If you did write those two scripting languages, we would finally
be able to type "man woman" to get docs on how to talk to women...
