Tagging Petr Viktorin and Matthias Klose, as this may impact distro builds of
3.5.4 that run the tests over the installed version rather than directly from
the VCS checkout.
It would be slightly helpful to not have to carry the "fix Python's self-tests"
patch indefinitely, but it's also not likely to be a major cause of patch
conflicts with security updates, so it shouldn't matter much either way.
