As noted on python-dev, it would be helpful if this change was mentioned in the 2.7, 3.5, and 3.6 What's New documents under a "Notable changes in maintenance releases" section.

For 2.7, that would be a retitling of the existing section "New features added to Python 2.7 maintenance releases":

For 3.5 and 3.6, this would be a new entry at the end of the document, with "Change to handling of pre-generated files" as the sole subsection.

(As another example of an existing section along these lines, see
