[Bug 1310794] Re: python-compizconfig needs to be ported to python3


After further discussion, I think we won't take this on as it's a big
pile of work.  I'm happy to consult with the upstream compiz folks if
they want to explore options.

What has been discussed is allowing unity7 autopilot tests to continue
to depend on Python 2 python-compizconfig.  Since unity7 isn't used on
touch, this won't block our progress on the Python 3 migration there.
We are likely going to split the autopilot source package during
u-series, with an autopilot-legacy branch providing python-autopilot and
friends (i.e. an unmaintained except for critical fixes, Python 2
support), with the trunk autopilot branch *only* providing Python 3
support.  When unity7 is completely replaced by unity8 then everything
will fall out naturally.
