It won't be backported. Python 2.7 is in bug-fix mode; no new features
are allowed it it. In addition, there won't be another 2.x release
(see PEP 404), so new features can only be added to Python 3.

If this means that you'll lose interest in this issue - that's fine.
Let us know whether you then would rather withdraw the patch, or
leave it open in case someone is motivated to port it. In the latter
case, please submit a contributor's form to the PSF.
