New submission from Antoine Pitrou:

There are a couple of places in our code with references to RISCOS (mostly as 
#ifdef's). I propose we record this platform as deprecated in 3.4 and removed 
in 3.5. This needs PEP 11 to be updated.

Wikipedia mentions the existence of two operating systems named "RISC OS". I 
conjecture we are talking about this one:
In any case, there hasn't been any report of people actually running Python on 
that OS for years, so it's unlikely to work at all.
