I'm still not too happy about supporting UIDs in plistlib, especially because 
I'm not sure it that's all that's needed. AFAIK I removed more types that the 
underlying encoder supported from plistlib because those are never used in 
plist files. 

The swift encoder for keyed archives is probably not the code that's actually 
used on the OS, AFAIK that still is Objective-C code.

P.S. I changed the version selection to 3.8, adding support for UIDs would be a 
feature change and not suited for back ports.

versions: +Python 3.8 -Python 3.5, Python 3.6
