> Note we compile expat with -DXML_POOR_ENTROPY on the assumption that Python always initializes the entropy itself.

Oh. I forgot this thing. So it seems like we have to backport this change to 2.7, 3.6 and newer versions.

What about Python 3.4 and 3.5? Python 3.5 has a copy of libexpat 2.2.0, but doesn't build expat with XML_POOR_ENTROPY=1.
