Python 3000 started as a project on 05-Apr-2006. There was not a single line of code written before that, nor a description of the feature set. It was just a joke, like the Parrot april fool's joke.
That's easy to disprove:
... at BeOpen.com we will be focused full time on Python development! This
means that we'll be able to spend much more time on exciting new
projects like Python 3000.
