AFAICT, there are two primary, perhaps identifying, parts to a PL extension: code management (compilation, execution, etc) and type I/O (conversion in most PLs). (well, aside from the language itself =)
My proposed extension chooses a different design for both of those parts.
It didn't make sense to try and incrementally change PL/Python because I would have been rewriting the whole thing anyways. Not to mention breaking user code in the process for the mentioned parts--thus the Python 3 target.
Hope this clears things up.
