mx dependency on Python 2.7

I've a rather superficial understanding of both mx and Python. What I've
got, however, is that mx depends on Python 2.7 and might not work on
Python 3.x.

The upcoming 16.04 LTS release of Ubuntu, planned for 2016-04-21, will
transition to Python 3.

I'm not sure if Python 2.7 can then co-exist transparently with Python
3. Stated otherwise, is it simply a matter of configuring the
environment vars to keep mx running correctly on a system with both
Python 2 and Python 3 installed?

More forwardly thinking, are there plans to move mx to Python 3?
