It is non-trivial to port this to python3. The C++ code needs to be ported too, and it seems like this is going to lead to splitting modules or a significant amount of ifdef's. I have spent several hours on this and don't feel like this is something we should keep doing, nor do I even trust myself to write the bindings correctly and safely. Additionally it seems like a significant portion of the code is ~7 years old. We should be using a more modern, better maintained library.
