Not yet, because the whole pyuno depends on python 2 and there are hundreds
python 2 *.py files. I can compile pyuno with python 3 without errors now,
but the
code not ready (quick and dirty hack). I think at the end, we can support
2.5 up to python 3.x with some #if directives.

       Andreas - it would be great to get a patch to kill the java config

I will do that at first.

It can take some time because I have also other things to do, but I will
work on it.
