I don't have an example to point you to, but there's probably not more to
it then writing a small script that finds all .rst and .txt doc files and
runs 2to3 on each file with the -d flag. I'd expect examples ending in .py
to be found already, but if not just find them in your examples folder in
that same script.

A comment in the statsmodels setup.py on how to convert with 2to3 might be
useful, I was expecting to find a call there to a numpy style conversion
script. I found it in README.txt in the end, but who reads READMEs these
