When installed for Python3, setup.py appends "-py3k" to the package name. This confuses tools such as pip for other packages that depend on pyserial, as pip now always thinks that pyserial is not installed and that it should install it. Removing the -py3k suffix has no downside, AFAICT.

    I currently have a project I'm working on which has this very issue. It's an annoyance, particularly as I use a .pip file (list of modules to install). Normally I can say
    pip -r modules.pip
    And missing modules are installed while ones already installed are skipped. Very convenient, except that it always tries to install pyserial.

    OK, dropping that suffix in setup.py.
