I thought Maciej provided a counter-example with the range function where
python 2.7 didn't run the code whereas python 2.6 worked. I may have missed
something in this long thread, wasn't the example valid ?

To keep thing consistent, I would prefer to have a CSWpy27- prefix if we
have a CSWpy3- our CSWpy33- prefix.
This way the user will not install a CSWpy- package while looking for a
module for python 3.
