Note that the discussion of this PEP *did* suffer from the "language summit
effect" where folks that couldn't make it to the summit are missing some of
the context. I believe I included all of the key motivating points in the
PEP itself, but it's still not the same as being there from a "why take the
risk?" perspective.

Of the approved feature backports, this one was the most borderline, and as
noted above, I think it could comfortably wait until 2.7.8. The SSL changes
are most significant, followed by the constant time comparison function,
and only then the other updates.
