 Replying to [comment:3 mwtoews]:
 > FWIW, Python 2.7 is the last release of the 2.x series, and will be
 maintained for a longer period than previous versions (expected to be more
 than two years).

 > As I expect the 2.x series (rather than 3.x) to be the dominant platform
 for a while longer, Python 2.7 is a realistic target to meet.
 > I just had a quick look at the scope of the Python packages in OSGeo4w,
 and on the upstream side they all appear to be "2.7 ready", so there
 aren't any serious obstacles. I'm interested in helping coordinate a
 transition, if any distributed help is needed.

 Agreed & +1 for upgrading to python 2.7 see also #214
