There's no agreed-on policy that says that, but I'd sure be hesitant to
make any invasive changes in support of adding a new port.  However,
this patch doesn't look unreasonably scary to me --- AFAICS it's just
syncing python.m4 and the plpython Makefile with 8.0's versions.  I
guess the question is does it break any old platforms?  Are we
comfortable with the buildfarm's coverage for python on 7.4?
