Kafka add-on: Unable to initialize modular input

The Kafka TA hasn't been updated since before 8 was released. Is it still supported? Running with 8.0.x and 8.1.x I get this error in the search GUI:

    Unable to initialize modular input "kafka_mod" defined in the app "Splunk_TA_kafka": Introspecting scheme=kafka_mod: script running failed (exited with code 1)..

splunkd.log shows

EDIT: This is a simple case of not wrapping print function in parens, as Python 3 requires. But that tells me this is not Python 3 aware. Seems this TA has been abandoned.
