Please make sure that the currently committed code is not released as part of Python 3.4. SHA-3 is not standardised yet, and NIST has said that they intend to make some changes to the Keccak SHA-3 submission before standardisation as a FIPS.

The links englabenny posted have a good overview of the SHA-3 timeline and the proposed changes.

It would be very confusing if hashlib in Python 3.4 came with a "sha3" that was incompatible with the final standard.
