I think merging the tokenizers still makes sense. We can then document
top-level (in 3.8 and later) as guaranteed to be able to
tokenize anything going back to Python 2.7. And since lib2to3/pgen2 it is
undocumented I presume removing lib2to3/pgen2/ isn't going to
break anything -- but if we worry about that it could be made into a
trivial wrapper for top-level

Still, the improvements you're planning to lib2to3 (no matter how
compatible) will benefit more people sooner if you extract it into its own
PyPI package. Not everybody can upgrade to 3.7 as soon as Instagram. :-)
