I'm trying to port SymPy (symbolic mathematics library) to Python 3. The goal is to use a single code base and then run 2to3 automatically when building for Python 3. Unfortunately, I've hit a small problem: running 2to3 takes a _long_ time, somewhere around 10 mins. This is a problem for users, but a particularly big one for me as it makes development last much longer (the change (Py2) code, run 2to3, test cycle takes a long time). Is there a way to speed up 2to3 execution? I do realize we've got quite a large code base. Will running 2to3 with some fixers disabled help with running time (ie. if I know I've fixed reduce and callable before, I might as well disable the fixers)? Any other advice to making it run faster?
Thanks a lot!
