The error from account-console looks like the following bug, which I
guess hadn't been fixed prior to the most recent OTA release:


Essentially, the script had been updated enough so it parsed as valid
Python 3, but didn't make semantic sense.  In Python 2, it prints a
message to stderr.  In Python 3, it constructs a tuple out of the
result of "print >> sys.stderr" and a string.  Since the ">>" operator
isn't defined for function objects, you get that error.

I'm not sure if there is an alternative to get the information Alberto wants.
