Just think about it for a while. If we get Nova to work with Py3, and
everything else is working, including all functional tests in Tempest,
then after Otaca, we could even start to *REMOVE* Py2 support after
Otaca+1. That would be really awesome to stop all the compat layer
madness and use the new features available in Py3.

I really would love to ship a full stack running Py3 for Debian Stretch.
However, for this, it'd be super helful to have as much visibility as
possible. Are we setting a hard deadline for the Otaca release? Or is
this just a goal we only "would like" to reach, but it's not really a
big deal if we don't reach it?
