I'm delighted to hear of progress making pycrypto work with Python 3 !

I am using Python 3 for all new application development, but still have 
web server stuff on Python 2, partly because it needs PyCrypto...

On approximately 3/3/2010 9:32 AM, came the following characters from 
the keyboard of Legrandin:
