Most of the opposition seems to be against a blanket replacing of all master and slave usages, which seems fairly reasonable to me. 

For example, I'm all for the libregrtest change since it conveys the meaning just as well and is an internal tool. However, changing MemoryView and pty seem way more iffy. These changes are potentially backwards incompatible and actually hurt usability.

Unlike other projects, Python doesn't have nearly enough uses of this terminology to warrant a massive political discussion in my opinion. Just look at the usages on a case-by-case basis and be done with it.
