Thanks for getting clarification on the Python issue, Tim.

To expand on Tim's latter point, because changing this in Python wouldn't 
be considered a bug fix in Python, the earliest Python version that could 
have the change would be 3.7. If the time between 3.6 and 3.7 is the same 
as the expected time between 3.5 and 3.6 (see [1] and [2] for those 
schedules), then 3.7 would be released in March 2018. Django users using 
Python 2.x or 3.6 or lower would never see the change if it's changed in 
Python alone.
