Larry,
I'm with Gregory. There is no good reason to add SHA3 to Python 2.7. The SHA-2 family is still safe. Besides I'd rather add BLAKE2 to Python 2.7. It's much faster and more versatile than SHA3.

Antoine,
SHAKEs are XOF (extensible output function). NIST has standardized the XOFs but not yet approved them as replacement for other constructs. They are useful for signatures or as a simple stream cipher. The SHAKEs were low hanging fruits to implement, so I included them.
