Comment(by barry):

 Just want to mention that I took a crack at re-implementing Python 3
 support using Cython.  I did it mostly as an experimental contrast to SWIG
 wrapping, and while it's been a little slow going, I'm fairly happy with
 it.  I'm going to continue down this path until I either get a complete
 working example (or in the short term, enough for Software Center) or hit
 an immovable road block.  You can track my work at
 git at github.com:warsaw/xapian.git in the py3 branch.

 I think this code is actually more or less independent of the rest of
 xapian-bindings, which means we could do one of two things, assuming the
 cython approach pans out.  It could either be included in your package,
 definitely in a separate xapian-bindings/python3 directory, or I could
 release it as a separate package.  I'm fine either way.  I'll follow up
 here when I have something more complete.
