I have not seen it handling everything. It does not handle reduce, for

print reduce(lambda x, y: x+y, [1, 2, 3])

is translated to

print(reduce(lambda x, y: x + y, [1, 1, 1]))

I guess an alternative to a compat module would be to extend 2to3, or
maybe mixing the two approaches. My understanding is that 2to3 is
"optimized" to get a single codebase for python 2.6 and 3.x, but we want
to be compatible below (>=2.4).
