In stark contrast to the brutal python 2-3 dichotomy, I feel compelled to express my gratitude for the degree to which — contra all the hating and churn and “fatigue” — es6+ (transpiled to es5 via babel) has become such a pragmatic and obvious center of gravity.

Yeah, why isn’t that part of the python ecosystem? Is the reason that unlike the browser, it is possible to upgrade the major version, so there wasn’t that driving force to support an ecosystem for transpiring?
