The thing I am trying to accomplish is not being one of "those modules"
that makes it impossible to do a complete jhbuild without lots of
fiddling. Not so much for myself (I can build Orca just fine), but for
everyone wishing to do a 'jhbuild build' and wander off for a sandwich.

Right now I am one of "those modules." :( And merely changing one's
environment over to Python 3 doesn't work because other modules are not
Python 3 ready.

So unless I'm missing something (which could easily be the case), I
think we either need a jhbuild which has additional smarts to handle
this situation or for all core modules which use Python to migrate to
Python 3. (New GNOME Goal?)

Take care.
