Barry, is this something that should go back to 2.7 or is that pretty much settled business at this point?

I think we should not backport this.  It's a behavior change and my concern
would be that anybody who's bitten by this in Python 2.7 is either already
dealing with it or has already worked around it.  I wouldn't want to change
that in a 2.7 point release.

@r.david.murray might have a different opinion.

I consciously decided not to backport this to 2.7 at the time, though I'm not sure I said that out loud.  I think it is too much of a behavior change for 2.7.

Actually, looking at the issue related to the patch, we conferred at the time, Barry, and decided on no backports.  It was applied only to default.  Sijian: the reason we put the issue number in the commit message is because the issue often contains relevant discussion that can supplement the commit message.
