Keeping library compatible with Python 2.6-3.4 using python-systemd as example

How hard is it to port a library to python 3? How much work is it going forward? Based on two examples (a pure Python, and a C-extension-based library), I want to show how in my experience the work required is modest, without significant impact on old code. At the same time, keeping Python2 compatibility constrains development under Python 3 because only the common subset of features can be used.
