(stable) Allow "hg arc-ls-markers" to run under Python 2 or Python 3
Ref T13546. See PHI1805. Currently, the "arc-ls-markers" extension doesn't run under Python 3:
- some stuff needs "b'...'" to mark it as a byte string;
- "dict.iteritems()" is gone in Python 3, and "mercurial.pycompat" isn't always available;
- in Python 3, "json" refuses to print byte strings; and
- the compiler caching behavior in Python 3 has changed.
Try to get these things working in the same way under Python 2 and Python 3.
Ran this command (with python as Python 2, locally):
$ python /usr/local/bin/hg --config 'extensions.arc-hg=/Users/epriestley/dev/core/lib/arcanist/support/hg/arc-hg.py' arc-ls-markers --
...and this command:
$ python3 /usr/local/bin/hg --config 'extensions.arc-hg=/Users/epriestley/dev/core/lib/arcanist/support/hg/arc-hg.py' arc-ls-markers --
..and saw the same output in both cases (previously, python3 ... fataled in various ways).
