Considering that Mercurial requires [0] Python 2.7 and Python 2.7 has 
six more weeks of life left [1], well ... I don't think it's realistic 
to expect Mercurial to remain a generally useful tool for two more 
years, in particular given that there is no roadmap [2] to move Python 3 
support in Mercurial out of experimental/beta status in the coming weeks.

And that doesn't even consider extensions, since

"3. Things need to be investigated"
" Nearly every extension will break in Python 3. "

So ... yeah.
