I agree it would be nice to get this in to 3.6. I'm not sure I'd go so far as to say it's a must and can't wait for 3.6.1. It's a non-trivial change, and it's up to Ned to say if it can go in to 3.6.

If you don't run with -Wall or -Werror, then you won't notice any new behavior with invalid escapes, correct?

Maybe post to python-dev and see if we can get more reviewers?
