Take a look at this repo:

Following commands are already working in both Py2/3:

bbremote ping
bbremote run "devinfo"
bbremote getenv "global.version"

So far there was only one place, where I explicitly make distinction
between Py2 and 3. Everything else seems to work well with bytearray


1. bbremote console works only in Py3, in Py2 it seems to freeze
2. add proper dependencies for (enum, enum34 for Py2 and
crcmod and pyserial for all versions). What minial Py3 version should
be supported? Perhaps choose 3.4 as is available on current Debian 8
3. licence: should we keep Barebox licence or move to MIT?
4. more tests
