Is this really worth it?  The original post identified pymox as
compatible with mox and Python 3 compatible.  If that's the case,
making a specific effort to convert everything doesn't seem very
valuable.  The downsides are risk of changing test behavior and
unnecessary burden on the review queue.

If a test needs to be changed anyway, then that seems like an
opportunistic time to go ahead and rewrite it.

If you have spare cycles, I can probably help find something more
valuable to work on.  Feel free to come talk to me.  I'd choose most
of the open bugs over this, for example.  There are hundreds of them
to choose from.  :-)
