Thanks, that's good to hear.
Bytecode caching (reading the .pyc/.pyo) files is probably silently
failing on an F11 rebuild of the srpm (due to rpmbuild byte-compiling
them all with /usr/bin/python i.e. 2.6 thus giving them the wrong ABI
magic value), but the only effect should be that it runs a little slower
than it should otherwise 
Let me know (via the python 3 review) if you run into anything
unexpected, or if there's anything we've missed. 
Also: if anyone wants to help package modules for python 3, that would
be most welcome!
 I've filed bugs with various rpmbuild macro/script patches to try to
fix this kind of thing; they're all on the Python3F13 tracker bug linked
to from https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Features/Python3F13
