Hi Tim,

I've just looked through the list of systems in use here:

 * Debian stable: Python 3.5.3
 * Ubuntu 16.04 (yes, LTS): 3.5.2
 * CentOS 6/7 (and therefore also RHEL): 3.3-3.5 via SCL, 3.3-3.6 via IUS

So all in all dropping 3.4 would be doable. I'd still strongly object to 
dropping 3.5.

Cheers,
Florian
