There are automated tools that will update to Python 3 while keeping compatibility with Python 2.

There is future, http://python-future.org/automatic_conversion.html,  and modernizer, https://python-modernize.readthedocs.io/en/latest 

This came up in https://bugs.webkit.org/show_bug.cgi?id=170439 and it seemed like 2/3 compatibility would be the ideal solution.

I stand corrected: we have one developer who has been using an elaborate local hack [1] to get WebKit's python scripts to work. Wow....
