In Py2 there is the execfile() function, while in Py3 there is none.

The tool 2to3 changes the calls to execfile() to wrapped calls of the builtin open(), compile and exec() functions. An example of a change lib2to3/fixes/ is

-        execfile(fpath, globals)
+        exec(compile(open(fpath).read(), fpath, 'exec'), globals)

There are 2 occurences of execfile() in sage/misc/
The code has to depend on the Python version!
