When creating an abstract class, subclassing tuple causes check for instantiation of an abstract class to be bypassed. See the associated stackoverflow question --

    from abc import abstractmethod, ABCMeta

    class AbstactClass(tuple, metaclass=ABCMeta):

        def some_method(self):

    # following should throw a TypeError, but doesn't

3.2 to 3.4 only get security fixes

Same as reported on issue #5996. Apparently this happens not only with tuple but with any builtin type.

There is a patch on that issue but there hasn't been any activity since 2011.
