I first proposed to drop OS/2 support in 2010. Andrew MacIntyre ported Python 2 to OS/2, he answered me:
"The 3.x branch needs quite a bit of work on OS/2 to 
deal with Unicode, as OS/2 was one of the earlier OSes with full 
multiple language support and IBM developed a unique API.  I'm still 
struggling to come to terms with this, partly because I myself don't 
"need" it."
