Default Python 3.3.0

Python 3.3.0 is in [staging]. See release announcement bellow for
summary of the changes.

I quickly rebuilded pyalpm, python-distribute and python-pyelftools so
that namcap will works in [staging] with the new python pkg. They still
needs to be checked to use the correct symlink in their shebangs.

On behalf of the Python development team, I'm delighted to announce the
Python 3.3.0 final release.

Python 3.3 includes a range of improvements of the 3.x series, as well
as easier porting between 2.x and 3.x. Major new features and changes
in the 3.3 release series are:

* PEP 380, syntax for delegating to a subgenerator ("yield from")
* PEP 393, flexible string representation (doing away with the
distinction between "wide" and "narrow" Unicode builds)
* A C implementation of the "decimal" module, with up to 120x speedup
for decimal-heavy applications
* The import system (__import__) now based on importlib by default
* The new "lzma" module with LZMA/XZ support
* PEP 397, a Python launcher for Windows
* PEP 405, virtual environment support in core
* PEP 420, namespace package support
* PEP 3151, reworking the OS and IO exception hierarchy
* PEP 3155, qualified name for classes and functions
* PEP 409, suppressing exception context
* PEP 414, explicit Unicode literals to help with porting
* PEP 418, extended platform-independent clocks in the "time" module
* PEP 412, a new key-sharing dictionary implementation that
significantly saves memory for object-oriented code
* PEP 362, the function-signature object
* The new "faulthandler" module that helps diagnosing crashes
* The new "unittest.mock" module
* The new "ipaddress" module
* The "sys.implementation" attribute
* A policy framework for the email package, with a provisional (see
PEP 411) policy that adds much improved unicode support for email
header parsing
* A "collections.ChainMap" class for linking mappings to a single unit
* Wrappers for many more POSIX functions in the "os" and "signal"
modules, as well as other useful functions such as "sendfile()"
* Hash randomization, introduced in earlier bugfix releases, is now
switched on by default

In total, almost 500 API items are new or improved in Python 3.3.
