I thought, I responded to this, looks like the email has not reached.

When I do python3 setup.py build, the first Warning that spits out is:

/usr/local/lib/python3.3/distutils/dist.py:259: UserWarning: Unknown
distribution option: 'use_2to3'

And urwid builds. But the code is still Python2 specific, I still have
to run 2to3 on all the modules before I use python3 to try out any

Is this the case for you too?

Yes, I am using the latest default branch from bitbucket. ( I have
also forked yours and kept updated with 2to3 run on files).

Thank you,
