I take it there are no objections to me merging this work?
If not, I will try to do it tomorrow (Sunday) or early next week,
and move on to the final issues before we can drop 2to3
(which I do not anticipate being problematic).

Once we've dropped 2to3, I would like us to a do a beta
release (by mid November?), and then bar any problems,
ship that as Biopython 1.63 (hopefully by late November).

(There are plenty of things pending which would be great
to have in the next release, but these changes are so wide
ranging that I would prefer we focus primarily on Python 3
for the next release.)
